If you have a child suffering with Cerebral Palsy, then you know how challenging a condition is. But, whether or not you are familiar with Cerebral Palsy, it’s important to understand that this condition that many people are born with could have been a result of medical malpractice. Read on for more information about the circumstances behind Cerebral Palsy.
About Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is a neurological disorder that influences body movement and makes muscle coordination difficult. Many people affected by it can struggle to walk or control their movement. Cerebral Palsy comes in three main varieties which are Spastic, Athetoid, and Ataxic.
How is Medical Malpractice Involved?
The main cause of Cerebral Palsy is when oxygen fails to reach the brain and the rest of the body. Cerebral Palsy can also be caused by preterm birth or some kind of birth trauma. These causes may be due to inadequate medical treatment. Some of the most common medical errors that can lead to Cerebral Palsy include:
- Delaying a scheduled or emergency C-Section
- Failure to monitor heart rate and breathing of the baby
- Not treating a mother’s infections during pregnancy
- Forceps or vacuum delivery mistakes
What You Should Do
If you think that medical negligence is the source of your child’s Cerebral Palsy, then you deserve justice. A child with Cerebral Palsy will need adequate care and medical monitoring throughout their lifetime. This can put an emotional and financial strain on your family. In this case, you should consider filing a malpractice lawsuit for what went wrong. The damages you receive will serve as financial compensation for medical bills as well as emotional anguish, which is why you need an expert attorney in your corner.
