Medical Malpractice > Cerebral Palsy


Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neuromuscular disorder caused by damage to the motor control centers of the young developing brain. It can occur during pregnancy (about 75%), during childbirth or after birth up to about age three. There is no known cure for CP. The lives of a CP patient’s family are changed forever. CP can be caused by asphyxia (lack of oxygen), hypoxia (low oxygen) of the brain, birth trauma, premature birth, certain infections or placental abruption. The average cost of managing a CP patient for his or her lifetime is almost a million dollars.

Sometimes a baby suffers a lack of oxygen to the brain before or during childbirth due to mismanagement by the obstetrician or the hospital staff. The obstetrician and the hospital nursing staff have responsibilities before and during the delivery to monitor the mother and the baby’s condition. If the doctor or the nurses do not properly read fetal monitor strips, if they wait too long to deliver the baby or if there are errors in the delivery technique, the delivery the baby can suffer inadequate oxygen to the brain, resulting in CP and a lifetime of constant care. CP is an overwhelming condition but Cerebral palsy medical malpractice is devastating.

Because the cost of maintaining a CP patient is so high and medical costs are ever-increasing, we very carefully identify the CP patient’s ongoing needs. We work with financial consultants and life care planners to relieve the family’s responsibilities as much as possible and seek full and fair compensation that will provide comprehensive care to provide for those needs.

Nate consulted with medical experts, dug in and proceeded with the civil suit. I remember him telling me several times that [my wife’s] story was compelling and was deserving of his team’s full commitment and skill. We eventually settled before trial and were thrilled with the results, we felt justice prevailed. Nate was patient, thorough and a trusted advisor to us through this.


He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman’s comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life.

Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives.

It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for.
