New York City Hospitals
Cerebral palsy is a medical condition that affects the motor skills of those who are affected by it. Unlike many other conditions, cerebral palsy usually occurs during gestation or at birth and is often diagnosed at a very early age. While not life-threatening, cerebral palsy can cause significant problems, which can affect nearly every aspect of the lives of those who are affected by this condition.
While there are a variety of different ways that a child can develop cerebral palsy, one of the most troubling causes involves errors or negligence on the part of medical care providers during the delivery of a child. Because of the substantial burdens that this condition can place on the life of a child and their family, medical professionals responsible for a child developing cerebral palsy may be held financially accountable for the consequences of their actions.
New York-Area Hospitals
In many cases, a lone medical professional will be responsible for causing a child to develop cerebral palsy. However, there are circumstances in which a hospital may also be held liable for the error. In these cases, the actions of hospital administrative staff or other parties at the hospital may be responsible for a baby developing cerebral palsy.
