Was Your Child Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy in Missouri? We Can Help!

A cerebral palsy diagnosis can be frightening and confusing. This is not the future you had planned for, but it is the hand you’ve been dealt. If your child’s condition was caused by any type of negligence by a medical professional involved before, during, or after delivery, they should play their part in setting things right. This can come in the form of a civil lawsuit, where you can seek financial compensation for your child’s medical treatment, pain, suffering, ongoing medical needs, and even lifelong care.

Cullan & Cullan is here to help during this difficult time. Our team includes Kansas City cerebral palsy attorneys who are also medical doctors. We use our legal and medical knowledge as well as our academic and hands-on experience to deliver the highest quality counsel in cerebral palsy cases. These are notoriously challenging and complex, but we are up to the task. We are committed to improving your child’s quality of life.

Call (816) 253-8606 now for a free consultation regarding your child’s condition, rights, and legal options.

What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is too often the result of medical negligence and mistakes. Oxygen deprivation or physical trauma can cause brain damage that leads to cerebral palsy, and when this occurs, at-fault parties should be held accountable. Only a complete and meticulous investigation into the circumstances surrounding your child’s birth will reveal whether malpractice may have caused his or her condition.

Potential malpractice-related causes of cerebral palsy may include:

  • Delayed C-section
  • Prolonged labor
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum
  • Mismanagement of childbirth complications
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Delayed response to fetal distress

With our medical and legal know-how, our Kansas City cerebral palsy lawyers at Cullan & Cullan are fully equipped to investigate these cases. We can effectively determine whether malpractice caused the birth injury and know how to prove it inside or outside of the civil courtroom.
