The tragedy of cerebral palsy and other birth injuries are most often caused by errors made by doctors and other healthcare workers during prenatal care, labor and delivery. As New York Birth Injury Attorneys with more decades of experience, we’ve seen many of these cases.

Failure to perform a cesarean section, giving mom too much of a drug like Pitocin, careless mistakes with surgical instruments like forceps or vacuum, miscalculating the baby’s size – any and all of these medical mistakes can contribute to a baby being born with cerebral palsy or other serious brain injury.

Cerebral Palsy

While they share common causes, not all types of cerebral palsy are the same. In fact, there are four types of cerebral palsy:

  • Spastic: the most common type of cerebral palsy, is characterized by spastic, rigid, jerky muscles.
  • Athetoid: the second most common type of cerebral palsy, is characterized by muscle problems all over the body.
  • Ataxic: rarest type of cerebral palsy, affects fine motor skills.
  • Mixed: a type of cerebral palsy in which children present with a combination of the above
    forms or symptoms.
