Phoenix Birth Injury Lawyers for the Victims of Cerebral Palsy Caused by Medical Malpractice
Cerebral palsy occurs when something interferes with the flow of oxygen to a baby’s brain eventually impairing brain development and nerve function. Studies have shown that cerebral palsy is often the result of medical malpractice and that it could have been prevented or lessened through proper prenatal and obstetric care.
Cerebral Palsy Caused by Medical Negligence
There are many things that health care providers can do which may cause cerebral palsy through either negligent action or inaction including:
- Failing to diagnose infection of the lining of the uterus
- Failing to treat certain risk factors
- Failing to diagnose fetal distress
- Allowing the baby to remain too long in the birth canal
- Failing to properly monitor vital signs
