Cerebral Palsy Can Be the Result of Medical Negligence — Our Lawyers Will Pursue Justice On Your Behalf

Cerebral palsy is a catch-all term for a specific group of conditions and symptoms caused by congenital defects or birth injury. It occurs in approximately two out of every 1,000 births and can be caused by medical negligence. If you believe that your baby’s cerebral palsy is the result of poor monitoring during birth or error on the part of the doctor during delivery, you need to consult with a Houston attorney experienced in handling cerebral palsy cases.

If you have a child with cerebral palsy that may have been caused by the negligence of your doctor, it is important to talk with an experienced Houston delivery injury attorney to determine whether the birth injury could have been prevented.

Common Causes of Cerebral Palsy

While cerebral palsy can simply occur in a child, in some cases it is the result of errors made by doctors, nurses and hospital staff. Some possible causes for cerebral palsy include:

  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner
  • Leaving the child in the birth canal for an extended period
  • Lack of oxygen to the child during labor and delivery
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum, resulting in birth trauma
  • Failure to recognize and rectify a prolapsed umbilical cord

It is important to have a medical expert review your child’s medical records to determine if cerebral palsy was caused by medical negligence. Our lawyers consult with these experts to ensure that you have answers as to what happened and why. We will pursue compensation on your behalf and hold those responsible for the harm done to your child accountable for their actions.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

Gus Morton

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
