Cerebral Palsy Compensation Claims
Cerebral palsy is a congenital condition that affects the development of a baby’s brain. In this condition, the brain is either damaged or does not develop normally, causing impairment in movement, muscle tone or ability to maintain posture and balance.
While it is true that the initial damage of cerebral palsy in the brain may be somewhat irreversible, early aggressive treatments may help to improve function.
In most cases, if your physician properly monitored you during pregnancy, cerebral palsy may not develop. Some examples of medical negligence that can cause cerebral palsy include:
- Failure to deliver baby on time resulting in loss of oxygen
- Failure to measure infants heart rate correctly during labour
- Failure to carry out a necessary emergency C-section
- Improper use of birth-assisting tools during delivery
- Failure to identify placental and umbilical cord problems
- Failure to detect infection during pregnancy
Though many factors can cause a baby to develop cerebral palsy, for successful cerebral palsy compensation claims, you need to establish that your child’s cerebral palsy resulted from mistakes or medical negligence.
We understand how physically, emotionally, and financially demanding it can be to take care of a child with cerebral palsy, and how far compensation can go in helping you take care of your child.
