Cerebral palsy birth injury is often the outcome of errors committed by the doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner during childbirth. When your child is diagnosed with this condition, expect to carry the burden of lifetime care and medical expenses.
In most cases, cerebral palsy occurs during delivery. It is often a result of hypoxia, a lack of oxygen to the brain, or asphyxia, a lack of oxygen to the body, premature delivery or trauma during the birthing process.
If you believe it was the result of a medical malpractice, your family is entitled to financial compensations from the negligent medical practitioner.
We advise to retain the services of a knowledgeable cerebral palsy lawyer to evaluate the circumstances and determine if it really is a case of medical malpractice. A financial compensation will not alter a lifetime of impairment and disability, but it will reduce the financial burden related to health care and treatment.

The first step in the review is to determine the cause, whether or not the injuries occurred due to the error of a medical practitioner or natural causes.
