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 Knowles Law Firm, PLC today.
