Throughout the childbirth process, a baby is vulnerable. In order to ensure safety, hospital staff members must undertake all necessary safety precautions.
One of the most important ways to ensure safety is to diligently monitor and measure the intake of oxygen to the baby and mother. Lack of oxygen can be catastrophic; when insufficient oxygen reaches the fetus, the baby can suffer cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy is actually a set of disorders related to motor function control issues. It can be categorized as spastic cerebral palsy, athetoid or dyskinetic cerebral palsy, or ataxic cerebral palsy. When a baby doesn’t receive proper oxygen intake or suffers brain injury, he or she can end up with this lifelong debilitation.
To make matters even more difficult, the medical treatments necessary for palsy can be expensive and challenging. A child may need to work with speech pathologists, occupational therapists, psychiatrists, physical therapists or other professionals. If your child suffered cerebral palsy due to what you believe was medical malpractice, we are here for you.
