A cerebral palsy lawsuit often involves claims against health care providers who provided substandard medical care during labor and delivery. Sadly, in Southwest Florida, medical malpractice occurs quietly but often, resulting in lifetime injuries and conditions
Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit Results from Preventable Birth Injury
Oxygen deprivation often occurs during a mother’s pregnancy or labor and delivery. Consequently, a baby may suffer irreversible birth trauma. Especially relevant, in such circumstances, a baby doesn’t receive oxygen he or she needs.
Accordingly, results may be catastrophic, as lacking oxygen results in brain damage. So, this is often how a cerebral palsy lawsuit begins.
Because a unborn child is completely fragile, a heart rate indicates strength, weakness, and fetal distress. Moreover, when sustained fetal distress occurs, then emergency labor and delivery methods must take place to prevent lack of oxygen to baby. This negligence is often identifiable in a cerebral palsy lawsuit.
In addition, a baby’s brain can suffer damage during delivery. Moreover, brain injury often becomes lifelong developmental disability. Accordingly, neurological disorders including CP, learning disabilities, paralysis, often result in a cerebral palsy lawsuit for compensation.
Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit Seeks Accountability
Cerebral palsy is a tragic but fairly common birth injury. Moreover, CP refers to several brain injury conditions impairing a child’s ability to control his or her body. Sadly, medical malpractice can cause cerebral palsy. Accordingly, as a medical malpractice lawyer having decades experience, when you contact me, I can help determine whether you have a strong cerebral palsy lawsuit.
Moreover, I work with appropriate medical experts to determine whether a doctor, nurse, midwife, or hospital bears responsibility for your child’s CP.
Especially relevant, a primary CP cause is birth asphyxia. This occurs when a newborn does not receive enough oxygen during labor and delivery. Moreover, often medical staff fail to properly conduct electronic fetal monitoring during labor and delivery. In addition, they often don’t provide proper post-birth observations. Your cerebral palsy lawsuit helps determine who is liable for these injuries.
