Unfortunately, more times than not the reason why a baby may suffer from brain damage or other serious medical conditions is due to the medical negligence or error on behalf of a doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical health care professionals and facilities. Any medical professional who fails to live up to the obligation to provide reasonable care prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or after birth can be held legally responsible if the failure directly causes the child to suffer birth injuries.
These types of medical errors or mistakes can give rise to a cerebral palsy lawsuit. In these lawsuits, parents and their children may be entitled to compensation. Compensation typically includes lifetime medical, housing, and educational benefits for the child which will help secure their future.
Some of the most common causes of that give rise to filing a cerebral palsy lawsuit include the failure to:
- Order specific tests during pregnancy; and not interpreting these tests correctly
- Perform a cesarean section in the presence of fetal distress
- Deliver the infant when the membranes have been ruptured for more than 24 hours
- Monitor the fetus, or to respond to signs of fetal distress
- Act quickly when the water breaks, there was unexpected bleeding, labor failed to progress, or maternal blood pressure rose suddenly.
Some of the largest community hospitals that are located in Redford and the surrounding areas, and may be held responsible in a birth injury lawsuit include:

- Oakwood Annapolis Hospital, Wayne, Michigan
- Sinai-Grace Hospital, Detroit, Michigan
