Cerebral Palsy Birth Injuries

Legal Counsel from Atlanta Medical Malpractice Attorneys

As a parent, you entrust your doctor to look after the health of your children, from pregnancy to birth, and even as the child grows. However, sometimes doctors act against opposite to what we would expect from them, and this can cause serious complications.

According to a study by Mayo Clinic, the likelihood of a child developing cerebral palsy occurs in approximately two to four births out of every 1, 000 in the United States and Europe. Although cerebral palsy can be an inherited condition, it is usually linked to negligence and other errors during labor.

Our Atlanta medical malpractice lawyers at Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. are standing by to assist you. Contact us to learn more about your legal options!

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy affects the neurological system, and the child may experience difficulty with their motor functions. The child may exhibit symptoms such as muscle stiffness, poor balance, and may suffer from muscle spasms. He or she may require extensive, long-term medical care and ongoing treatments for the rest of their lives. One of the largest causes of cerebral palsy comes from oxygen deprivation.

Cerebral palsy linked may be caused by the following errors:

  • Failing to detect the child is in breech position
  • Failure to recognize and treat signs of fetal distress
  • Failure to address changes in a baby’s heart beat
  • Umbilical cord wrapped around the baby’s neck
  • Mishandling the baby with forceps or a vacuum
  • Failure to promptly order a C-section when necessary
  • Failure to identify and treat maternal infections
