Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Lawyers in Baltimore
Experienced & Skilled Legal Advocacy
While the birth of your child is a joyous and momentous occasion, it can also be extremely devastating if your child is injured during labor and delivery. Cerebral palsy is an incredibly serious and dangerous health concern, most commonly the result of medical malpractice at or around the time of childbirth. Also known as CP, this medical condition can have significant and lifelong consequences for your child and your family.
Cerebral palsy typically occurs due to a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain, or trauma to the head. It has the potential to ruin your child’s life, as it can adversely affect your child’s ability to walk, speak and function. If your child has suffered a birth injury resulting in cerebral palsy, our Baltimore birth injury attorneys of Brown & Barron, LLC want to help ensure that you don’t endure these difficulties and challenges without the legal counsel, care, and representation you deserve.
The following are common causes of cerebral palsy as a result of birth injury:
- Delay in performing, or failure to perform, a C-section
- Failure to monitor fetal heart rate, both before and during labor and delivery
- Failure to recognize and prevent a premature delivery
- Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
- Failure to recognize and treat placental abruption
- Failure to detect and properly treat infections in the mother during pregnancy
- Failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord
- Negligent use of forceps or vacuum during delivery
