Cerebral Palsy is a brain injury that can occur prior to birth, during labor and delivery, or shortly after birth. Doctors and hospitals do not always provide the parents with the real reasons that cause their child’s brain damage and other medical problems.
If you or someone you care about in the Rochester Hills area has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you owe it to yourself to find out if your child’s condition was due to a medical mistake.
If it is determined that your baby is injured due to a medical mistake, it can give rise to a cerebral palsy lawsuit against the negligent doctor, hospital, nurse, or other medical health care professionals and facilities. Both the child and parents may be entitled to receive compensation. Compensation typically includes lifetime medical, housing, and education benefits for the child.
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 the City of Rochester Hills and surrounding areas, and may be held responsible in a birth injury lawsuit include:

- Alsac St. Jude, Rochester Hills, Michigan
- Beaumont Hospital, Troy, Michigan
