Mixed Cerebral Palsy

Children with Mixed Cerebral Palsy have symptoms of more than one type of cerebral palsy, such as Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, or Spastic Cerebral Palsy. Mixed cerebral palsy children most commonly have spastic cerebral palsy blended with athetoid cerebral palsy, resulting in tight muscle tone and involuntary movement and reflexes. Injury to the pyramidal and extrapyramidal neurons and areas of the brain (back of the head and into the neck) often causes mixed cerebral palsy. Symptoms of mixed cerebral palsy often exhibit themselves first with muscle spasticity at six months followed by involuntary movements and reflexes at nine months to three years. Misdiagnosis of mixed cerebral palsy is common as the signs and symptoms can be masked by each of the different types. MRIs and other brain scans can assist in the diagnosis, often showing signs of injury or lack of development in these areas of the brain. If you believe or want to find out if your child's mixed cerebral palsy condition could have been prevented or was a result of medical malpractice, negligence, misdiagnosis, or not diagnosed at all, contact our birth injury attorneys. When doctors, nurses, staff, and medical facilities fall below the minimum standard of skill and care to which their profession demands, medical malpractice and negligence is an unfortunate but likely result. At the Rasansky Law Firm, we question why these healthcare professionals failed to do everything possible to prevent your child's injuries. We regularly consult with Board Certified Obstetrician Gynecologists, Maternal Fetal Specialists, Neonatologists, and Pediatric Neurologists to determine whether your child's injuries should have been prevented.
