Lack Of Oxygen At Birth Can Have Lifelong Consequences
Tracing Cerebral Palsy Back To Medical Negligence
Cerebral palsy is a brain injury that results in a lack of muscular coordination and balance. It can be caused by medical negligence if a doctor fails to notice that a baby needs oxygen during delivery. It can also be caused if the baby suffers trauma to the head during delivery, and the subsequent bleeding causes damage. If you suspect your baby may have acquired cerebral palsy as a result of medical malpractice, it’s important to speak with a qualified attorney who can evaluate your case and build an effective case for compensation.
Compensation For Birth Injuries Can Be Significant
Because infants who are injured at birth may require a lifetime of medical intervention, the potential compensation for these types of cases can be considerable. Paying these expenses on your own can quickly become unmanageable. Bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit may also be the only way you may be able to access the kind of financial resources you will need over the long term to care for your baby. At Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC, our medical malpractice attorneys know how to assemble a strong case to give you the best chance at the maximum possible recovery.
