When doctors do not take adequate care to make sure babies are getting enough oxygen during childbirth, they can end up suffering serious brain injuries. These injuries can cause them to develop cerebral palsy (CP), a physical disability affecting the basic motor functions.
At the Providence law firm of DeLuca & Weizenbaum, our experienced Rhode Island cerebral palsy attorneys help parents seek compensation for children injured due to delivery-related malpractice. If your child has been diagnosed with CP, contact us to discuss your options.
Has Your Child Been Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy?
Brain injuries sustained during childbirth as a result of oxygen deprivation are among the most common causes of cerebral palsy. When a doctor is delivering a baby, he or she is expected to pay close attention to any potential warning signs of restricted oxygen flow.
When OB-GYNs and other providers fail to follow professional standards of care and children end up developing cerebral palsy as a result, they can be held accountable.
Cerebral palsy is not always diagnosed right away. In some cases, a child may not show any symptoms until well after birth. In other cases, a child may be diagnosed with a brain injury relatively quickly, but the specific symptoms of CP may not develop until later.
