Has your child been diagnosed with cerebral palsy? While this condition can have various underlying causes, it is estimated that one in ten cases of cerebral palsy can be attributed to medical malpractice.
The following are examples of obstetrical malpractice that can lead to cerebral palsy:
- Delayed C-section
- Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia
- Misuse of vacuum or forceps
- Failure to recognize or respond to fetal distress

Linking Cerebral Palsy to Malpractice
If you are facing the significant financial burden of raising a child with cerebral palsy, you need all the help you can get. If a doctor or other medical professional is responsible for your child’s condition, it is only right that you should be able to pursue justice in the form of financial compensation for your child’s care. With cerebral palsy, this compensation can make a considerable impact on your ability to help your child lead a more independent and fulfilling life.
To secure compensation, it will be necessary to link your child’s condition to malpractice, which is essentially a failure to provide standard medical care. That is where our team of birth injury attorneys and staff come in. With our resources, we can properly investigate the circumstances surrounding your child’s birth to determine whether mistakes were made.
