Spastic quadriplegia is a form of cerebral palsy that affects a child’s
arms and legs, and in some cases the body. Spastic quadriplegia is different
from quadriplegia in that it does not necessarily result in paralysis
to all four limbs, but rather spasticity of the limbs that can create
stiffness and involuntary movements. Spastic quadriplegia is the most
severe form of cerebral palsy, and it can result in significant impairment
that greatly impacts the life of a child and their ability to meet the
demands of daily life.

Spastic Quadriplegia & Birth Injuries
Like other forms of cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia results from brain
damage that can occur during delivery of birth. Often this brain damage
results from oxygen deprivation to an unborn baby. Medical professionals
who oversee a delivery have an obligation to monitor mothers and their
babies, and take appropriate steps when risks or indicators of distress
present themselves. When they fail to do so, such as when a medical professional
delays a C-section, a baby can suffer from oxygen deprivation and brain
damage, and develop spastic quadriplegia.
Proven Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
Over the years, our legal team has successfully recovered millions of dollars
in compensation for victims and families affected by cerebral palsy resulting
from medical negligence. Our notable verdicts and settlements include
birth injury cases involving many different forms of the disorder, including
quadriplegia cerebral palsy. For example:
$30 Million Verdict – Our legal team and Geoffrey Fieger secured a record $30 million
verdict from a Cuyahoga County, Ohio jury on behalf of a 17-year-old boy
who suffered severe brain damage as a result of a negligent obstetrician
and hospital staff delaying an emergency C-section. By delaying the
C-section, our client suffered from oxygen deprivation that caused his cerebral
palsy and spastic quadriplegia, making him dependent on 24-hour care.
$17 Million Verdict – Our firm obtained the largest verdict in an obstetrical malpractice
case in the history of West Virginia when a Monangalia County jury found
the hospital and obstetrician liable for negligence against our client
and her family during and after birth. As a result of their failure to
deliver a timely C-section and failures to properly resuscitate and treat
the distressed newborn, our client suffered brain damage that caused cerebral
palsy and spastic quadriplegia.
