Cerebral Palsy Attorney Providing Nationwide Support
Mixed Cerebral Palsy Cases in the U.S.
In too many unfortunate circumstances, a child is born with some form of cerebral palsy due to
doctor error or negligence. While we trust our doctors to provide high quality and an unparalleled level of expertise in the medical field,
mistakes in the delivery room often have devastating effects on an entire family. Mixed cerebral palsy, or the mixture of spastic and athetoid cerebral palsy, is a harmful
birth injury that affects newborns nationwide. If your child was born with a birth injury in any city or state throughout the United States, immediately contact the renowned and compassionate
cerebral palsy lawyer
Dr. Bruce Fagel.
Spastic cerebral palsy, the most common form, affects children in dangerous ways. It causes the victim to have stiff and jerky movements. Athetoid cerebral palsy, on the other hand, causes affected newborns to have involuntary movements in the face and arms, and is caused by damage to the cerebellum or basal ganglia. Additionally, other types of cerebral palsy include the following:
- Ataxic Cerebral Palsy – characterized by poor coordination and low muscle tone
- Spastic Diplegia – both arms and legs are affected, however legs are more severely affected
- Spastic Hemiplegia – spasticity affects the arm and leg on one side of the body
- Spastic Paraplegia – spasticity affects the legs, the arms are usually unharmed
- Spastic Quadriplegia – all four limbs are equally affected by cerebral palsy
