Chicago Cerebral Palsy Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects a person’s body movement, balance and posture. There are many cause of cerebral palsy, including medical mistakes made during the birthing process. Some of these injuries are preventable and are caused by:
- Failure to find prolapsed umbilical cord
- Failure to perform timely C-section
- Failure to treat infection
- Failure to treat jaundice
- Failure to treat meningitis
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum
If a brain injury is sustained during birth and was caused by medical malpractice, our attorneys can help you seek the compensation you deserve. The medical professionals should be held responsible for their actions.
Cerebral palsy is not always noticeable at birth and may take some years to notice the symptoms. If a medical professional has failed to notice or treat any potential brain injury when the baby is born, they may be held responsible for the baby’s injuries.
