About Birth Injuries Caused By Malpractice
Cerebral palsy, one of the most upsetting
birth injuries a newborn baby can sustain, can be caused by a variety of factors. While
the cause of some cases goes undetermined, many cases of cerebral palsy
and related birth injuries such as
Erb's palsy are due to a doctor's negligent or irresponsible actions. To find
out that your newborn child has been injured due to the fault of another
person who you have put your trust into may be difficult to understand,
and frustrating, to say the least. Despite how severe the birth injuries
are and how upset you may be, talking to a Phoenix personal injury lawyer
from the firm is the best course of action for you right now.
As with most
medical malpractice cases, it will take thorough investigation to determine if the doctor
is truly at fault for the injuries. A child can be diagnosed with cerebral
palsy due to the lack of oxygen in their brain either before, during or
after childbirth. As one of the most severe birth injuries, it can occur
in cases where a doctor fails to perform a cesarean section when necessary,
such as in cases where the child is too large to fit through the birth canal.
Lack of oxygen to the body, central nervous system infections, trauma during
birth and premature delivery can all cause an infant to develop cerebral
palsy as well . Furthermore, the infant does not have to develop this
injury immediately - he or she may develop it in the first few years of
life. If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and you believe
that an irresponsible doctor should be held responsible, please talk to
the legal team at
