Many experts believe that delivery mistakes lead to many cases of cerebral palsy. Sometimes, delivery mistakes are strictly because of the mother. For instance, premature deliveries have been documented as providing a greater risk of the child developing cerebral palsy. Other factors include a prolonged rupture of the amniotic membranes, slow fetal heart rate during labor, complications from umbilical cord placement and abnormal presentation of the child.

Birth mistakes that do not come from the mother are often procedural errors made by the doctors. Some of these errors have severe consequences. It is very important that the doctor ensures that the baby has enough oxygen during the delivery. If complications should arise, it is the responsibility of the doctor and the medical staff to act quickly to save the lives of both the mother and the child. Sometimes a cesarean section is required to prevent birth asphyxia a condition that often results in brain damage, cerebral palsy and sometimes death.

If your child has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy by a condition that may have been prevented, it is your responsibility to contact a lawyer immediately. Once certain delivery mistakes have been made, it is likely that they will occur again. A qualified Cerebral Palsy attorney will notify you of your legal right to receive reparations for you and your family as well as work to prevent future medical negligence.
