Causes Of Cerebral Palsy And Birth Injuries
Cerebral palsy can be caused by environmental and genetic factors. However, in most cases, it is attributable to a birth injury — during pregnancy, birth or the neonatal period. Unfortunately, birth injuries that result in cerebral palsy are often linked to medical malpractice. In many cases, cerebral palsy is a preventable condition. This means that medical practitioners can avoid cerebral palsy by following the standards of care for a given pregnancy, labor, or birth. If they mismanage the above conditions, cerebral palsy is much more likely to result.
Determining If You Have A Cerebral Palsy Case
Determining whether a child’s cerebral palsy is the result of medical negligence is crucial in determining eligibility for compensation permitted by the law. Unfortunately, a number of families avoid medical malpractice litigation for different reasons. The best — and only — way to find out if you have a cerebral palsy case is to reach out to an attorney for a legal consultation. An experienced birth injury attorney will do a thorough investigation of the medical records and review the case with expert medical professionals to determine whether negligent care was the cause of a child’s cerebral palsy.
