Maryland Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Helping Families Bring Negligent Health Care Providers to Justice
A group of disorders, cerebral palsy (CP) can impact a person’s movement, balance, coordination, and posture. Today, CP is the single most common childhood motor disability, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
When a birth injury leads to CP, you and your child may be eligible for compensation for both past and future damages. At Alpert Schreyer, LLC, our experienced cerebral palsy lawyers have recovered victims financial support for their pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages/earning potential, and more. We have helped clients in Maryland and Washington, DC exercise their rights for over 30 years. Let us take care of the legal side of your case. That way, you can focus on yourself and your family.

When Medical Malpractice Causes Cerebral Palsy
While CP is not always preventable, there are cases in which medical malpractice during labor and delivery is at fault. All it takes is a few moments of negligence on the part of one doctor for serious harm to come to a mother and child.
Common negligent causes of CP include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Failing to monitor labor
- Failing to respond to fetal distress
- Failing to identify or listen to a mother’s symptoms
- Failing to safely guide a baby along the birth canal
- C-section errors, including failing to order an emergency C-section
If you suspect that negligence led to your child’s CP, don’t hesitate to contact Alpert Schreyer, LLC. You have rights, and we’re here to help you exercise them.

Unfortunately, many victims of medical negligence do not know that any form of negligence was committed. They may be led to believe that their child’s CP was unpreventable, despite this being far from the truth.
At Alpert Schreyer, LLC, we help parents find answers. Our Maryland team can launch a full-scale investigation into your case to determine whether negligence played a role. Time after time, we have uncovered negligence where a medical professional or the hospital they work at tried to cover it up. We know these cases are deeply personal, which is why we take a compassionate approach to legal counsel.
We also offer our clients:
- 24/7 availability
- Free consultations
- Premier legal representation
- 30+ years of experience
- No upfront fees
There are time limits on every type of claim. For these cases, since the child is the injured party, they have until they are 21 years old to bring a claim. It is not recommended to wait, however. The chances of recovering compensation are higher the sooner a person begins their case. A parent can bring a claim on their child’s behalf, but they only have five years after the date of injury, or three years after the date they discovered the injury—whichever comes first.
