Cerebral palsy is a serious birth injury that comes with a lifetime of consequences. The condition may be the result of a medical error during childbirth in which the baby’s oxygen level was restricted during labor. If your baby does not receive enough oxygen during childbirth, it can result in certain types of brain damage, including causing cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy has significant consequences for the child, which include:

Not every birth injury is a result of doctor error or medical malpractice. To determine whether your child’s injuries were a result of negligence, the facts surrounding what occurred during the birthing process must be investigated thoroughly. We have the professional resources and knowledge to determine whether your baby’s condition was the result of a failure to act with the accepted standard of care.
As a medical professional, your doctor is responsible for monitoring and recognizing risk factors for cerebral palsy and taking specific actions to avoid hypoxia – the medical term for oxygen deprivation. If your doctor failed to act to prevent birth injury from occurring, it is possible to seek justice and compensatory damages through filing a birth injury lawsuit.
If certain decisions are made incorrectly, tragedy can result. For example:
There are other causes of failure such as the failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord or the improper use of delivery forceps or a vacuum extractor. Whatever the cause of your child's cerebral palsy, our New York cerebral palsy attorneys and lawyers will get to the bottom of it. Once the negligent parties are identified, we will work diligently to recover the financial compensation your child needs to live with dignity and comfort.
