What Types Of Negligence Lead To Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries are frequently the result of negligent medical care. Cerebral palsy is not always a random accident of nature in today’s world and is a diagnosis that possibly could have been prevented. Surprisingly a significant number of cerebral palsy cases could have been prevented or mitigated through vigilant, attentive, prenatal and obstetric care.
If your child was born with the guidance and assistance of health care providers, and suffers from the debilitating effects of cerebral palsy, you deserve to know why. Contact the Cleveland, Ohio, birth injury attorneys of The Lancione Law Firm to schedule your free, thoughtful, in-depth consultation.
We Conduct Thorough Investigations To Determine ‘Why’ Cerebral Palsy Occurred
Often, we find that an in depth, detailed investigation reveals that the birthing circumstances of a child with neurological disorders such as cerebral palsy usually show that medical negligence was a factor during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. Any number of negligence factors may cause hypoxia which is a reduction of oxygen in the blood of the baby and can lead to brain damage. An infection in the lining of the uterus affecting the bag of waters may need to be treated with antibiotics. Failure to properly treat the infection in time can create risk factors that may lead to the development of cerebral palsy.
Failure To Monitor Or Diagnose Fetal Distress Is Medical Negligence
During labor, failure to diagnose fetal distress constitutes negligence when nurses and technicians did not monitor the baby’s vital signs properly, or an obstetrician did not respond in a timely manner to reports of problems or timely treatments. The failure of medical personnel to adequately respond to fetal distress can result in significant birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, or other disabilities.
