A Medical Error Can Lead To A Lifelong Disease
Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a number of conditions that happen because of brain damage sustained at birth. When cerebral palsy was caused by medical errors, when proper care would have prevented cerebral palsy, that is medical malpractice.
At The Law Offices of Salazar, Sullivan & Jasionowski, our lawyers work with parents who need answers about their baby’s birth injury. An Albuquerque cerebral palsy lawyer can review the medical records and determine if negligent medical care may have been the cause.
Cerebral Palsy Can Cause Motor And Cognitive Disabilities
A lack of oxygen to the brain can cause serious brain damage. There are many degrees of brain damage. Depending on which part of the brain is affected, a baby can suffer different kinds of injuries.
Cerebral palsy may cause motor disabilities. Gross motor skills (such as walking and running) can be damaged. Or the baby may have damage to fine motor skills — the skills that enable people to use their hands effectively, for example. Cerebral palsy can also cause cognitive problems — an inability to think or reason at a normal level.
When a delivery doesn’t go right, when birth complications arise, cerebral palsy can be the result. If the birth injury was caused by medical error, it is important to talk with a medical malpractice attorney about obtaining the financial resources needed to deal with the injury now and for the child’s lifetime.
