Did Medical Malpractice Cause Your Child's Cerebral Palsy?

When a cerebral palsy diagnosis is made, many parents wonder: was medical malpractice to blame? Is there anything that could have prevented this diagnosis? These are all very good questions and the truth is that sadly, medical malpractice has caused thousands of cerebral palsy cases. Doctors’ mistakes are often to blame for Cerebral Palsy and other birth injuries.

At The Lancione Law Firm, we handle birth injury cases related to many different types of medical errors, including the ones listed below:

  • Allowing the child to remain too long in the birth canal which leads to oxygen deprivation
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner
  • Failure to plan a cesarean section in a high-risk pregnancy
  • Undetected or untreated umbilical cord prolapse
  • Failure to diagnose and treat bacterial meningitis
  • Failure to diagnose or treat seizures post-delivery
  • Failure to diagnose and treat jaundice, leading to Kernicterus
  • Other brain damage or brain infections
  • Vacuum extraction or forceps errors leading to head injury

Medical errors leading to cerebral palsy can occur during pregnancy, labor and birth. They can also occur immediately following the birth. They happen when doctors fail at providing proper medical care that other doctors would have provided in similar situations. This can be due to inaction, by failing to prevent an injury, or by action: making a mistake that causes harm.
