Trusted McAlester birth injury attorneys to represent you
Cerebral palsy is an affliction that has affected many children across the nation, and it can challenge parents who are unprepared to deal with the condition and its medical costs. The Oklahoma cerebral palsy attorneys at Stipe Law Firm have decades of experience covering cerebral palsy cases and want to help you gain the means to give your child the best life possible.
The basics of cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy is caused by a lack of oxygen to the infant’s brain during labor or delivery. There are several variants of the condition, including:
- Ataxic cerebral palsy, which affects depth perception and balance
- Athetoid cerebral palsy, which gives people uncontrollable twists and squirms
- Spastic cerebral palsy, the most common form, which causes tight muscles and uncontrollable jerks
To properly diagnose the condition, doctors administer a full neurological examination, CT and MRI scans, vision and hearing tests, blood tests and more. While cerebral palsy has no cure, there are a number of treatments available to give the child a greater ability to cope with the disorder. These treatments include:
At Stipe Harper, our goal is to ensure your child gets the opportunity to live as normal a life as possible. We work hard to obtain compensation for you to cover short-term and long-term medical care whenever a birth injury has occurred due to the negligence of others.
Let our McAlester birth injury lawyers secure your child’s future
The cerebral palsy attorneys at our McAlester office have experience in providing parents with the means necessary for proper treatment. In many cases, birth injuries are a result of medical malpractice. Our lawyers fight to secure you compensation to cover:
- Medical care. A lifetime of medical bills is more than any parent can afford. Our lawyers work to get you this compensation.
- Emotional and extra damages. For the pain and suffering of your child and yourself as a parent, our lawyers seek to earn additional damages.
If you believe your child developed cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or brachial plexus palsy as a result of medical malpractice, be sure to take action immediately, as the statute of limitations following an injury has a short window and can impede your ability to file a lawsuit. Our attorneys stand by your side to make sure that you get swift and satisfactory resolution.
