Dealing with Cerebral Palsy? We Are Willing to Do Whatever it Takes to Recover the Compensation You Deserve

Dealing with Cerebral Palsy?

Birth Injuries Can Cause Lifelong Permanent Damage

If your child is oxygen deprived during the labor and birth process, it can lead to a permanent condition known as cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy manifests in muscle spasms and writhing, as well as lack of muscle tone and missing developmental milestones. Cerebral palsy that results from a lack of oxygen can often be linked back to a doctor or medical professional's failure to provide adequate medical attention during the labor and delivery process.

Actions that can directly lead to cerebral palsy include, but are not limited to:

  • Violent use of forceps
  • Use of the vacuum
  • Unusually long labors, generally more than 18 hours
  • Cord compression leading to lack of oxygen

If you suspect that any of these occurred during your labor, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against your healthcare providers. While no amount of compensation can balance out the life-long struggle you face as the parent of a child with cerebral palsy, it is important to hold negligent parties accountable.
