Cerebral Palsy Delayed Diagnosis Lawyer
The symptoms of cerebral palsy (CP) are usually recognizable during a child’s mobile developmental stage between 6 and a half to 9 months in mild cases and recognizable at birth in more severe ones. In either case, at birth or when the symptoms begin to manifest, a doctor should be able to provide an accurate diagnosis in order to seek the best course of treatment for your child. Regrettably, this diagnosis sometimes arrives late and allows the symptoms of the condition to progress untreated. When such delays are caused by ignorance or carelessness, they can cause your child undue physical and emotional trauma.
If your child was not diagnosed with CP in a timely manner, you may be able to seek compensation for you and your family’s suffering. Our understanding cerebral palsy delayed diagnosis lawyers of The Driscoll Firm are familiar with medical malpractice cases involving cerebral palsy and may be able to help you seek restitution for medical expenses, emotional trauma, and physical suffering.

Effects of Delayed Diagnoses
In the case of CP, medical professionals should be able to identify it in order to mitigate the painful and debilitating effects of its symptoms. When they negligently fail to do so, some of the results may include:
- The child going untreated
- The child suffering avoidable pain and disability
- Secondary complications arising from the CP symptoms
- The child incurring unnecessary medical bills
When medical professionals needlessly cause a child to suffer from CP without any medical interventions, they should be held accountable for their negligent actions.
