Common Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy can be the result of a congenital defect. However, in many cases, it is the preventable result of a mistake made by a medical staff member. Some causes of cerebral palsy are:
- A cesarean section is not performed quickly enough
- The child has been left in the birth canal for too long
- Insufficient oxygen is provided to the child during birth
- Forceps or vacuum are used inappropriately during the birth
- A prolapsed umbilical cord is not rectified in time
It is vital that you have a medical expert review the medical records of your child to conclude whether cerebral palsy was the result of medical negligence. The experts can then discuss your case with our lawyers to ensure that you have a clear picture as to the reason behind your child´s birth injury. If the birth injury is a result of medical negligence, those responsible must be held accountable for the suffering caused to your child and your family and we will pursue compensation on your behalf accordingly.
