Cerebral palsy describes a group of disorders typically related to an individual's inability to control motor function. Typically, cerebral palsy is categorized into four types: spastic cerebral palsy, athetoid or dyskinetic cerebral palsy and ataxic cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is most often caused by oxygen deprivation or brain damage during the birthing process. Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP is one of the leading birth injury law firms in New York City. Our attorneys have in-depth experience in birth injury cases involving cerebral palsy.
The medical care for children and adults diagnosed with cerebral palsy can be financially and emotionally challenging. Cerebral palsy can require a lifetime of medical care to deal with the physical disorders. Your child may need to work with speech pathologists, occupational therapists, psychiatrists and physical therapists as well. Our lawyers have successfully resolved numerous cerebral palsy cases. We have also earned successful verdicts for our clients in trial.
We will look closely into the circumstances of your child's care. If medical negligence is responsible for your child's condition, we will take action.

Once the negligent parties are identified, we will work diligently to recover the financial compensation your child needs to live with dignity and comfort.
