New Jersey Cerebral Palsy Attorneys & Birth Injury Lawyers Helping Families Throughout Central NJ
If your child was born with cerebral palsy, you may want to know how the injury happened and whether it was preventable. The answers aren’t always easy to find. Hospitals are often reluctant to provide information about mistakes in the delivery process. It may take a lawyer’s help to learn the truth and hold the medical providers accountable.
At Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A., our lawyers have been helping the families of children injured during the birthing process since 1975. We know how devastating these injuries are, and we bring in our senior partners to provide the experience necessary to handle your case. We serve clients in Middlesex County and throughout New Jersey.
Causes and Treatment of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that affects body movements and muscle coordination. It may be caused by abnormal development in the immature brain or by an injury before, during or after birth. In some cases, there is nothing the doctors and delivery staff could have done to prevent the condition. In other cases, it may be caused by a deprivation of oxygen to the brain during the delivery process.
Our attorneys have access to experts who can evaluate your child’s birth records. If your child’s cerebral palsy was caused by negligence during the delivery process, you may be entitled to compensation by filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against the hospital or doctor.
While cerebral palsy cannot be cured, you can seek compensation for medical expenses and other services your child will need for the rest of his or her life. Securing the representation of a law firm that has the experience and skills to handle birth injury cases is essential to obtain a positive outcome.
