Cerebral Palsy

Welcoming your child to the world should be a joyous occasion — not one filled with anxiety and stress about an injury your child obtained shortly before or during his or her birth. If you believe that your baby sustained a birth injury that resulted in cerebral palsy because of the negligent or unethical care of your doctor or hospital, we urge you to contact Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC.

Since 1989, the skilled cerebral palsy attorneys at our New Jersey medical malpractice law firm have been representing the mothers and fathers of children suffering from serious brain injuries, such as cerebral palsy, and other birth injuries throughout the state.

Protecting The Rights And The Best Interests Of Your Injured Child

While cerebral palsy can be caused by genetic problems or other injuries that can occur long before birth, a significant percentage of babies sustain this type of brain damage during labor. This is typically caused by the lack of oxygen to the baby during the birthing process.

Our team of New Jersey lawyers at Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, understands how devastating brain injuries such as cerebral palsy is to our clients, especially when proper medical care and assistance could have prevented the irreversible injury. Contact us today to learn about how our attorneys can assist you with your case.

Over the past two decades, we have handled several medical malpractice cases involving cerebral palsy and other severe brain injuries resulting from:

  • Injury to a baby's brain in utero
  • Injury to a baby's brain during delivery
  • Lack of oxygen to a baby's brain during delivery
  • Brain damage due to loss of oxygen
  • Gynecological complications
  • Injuries undetected during pregnancy
  • Injuries occurring after birth

While our attorneys cannot erase the event that led to your child's cerebral palsy diagnosis, we can help you move past the injury by holding the responsible medical professional or facility accountable for the negligent acts that caused brain damage to your child.
