Was Your Child Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy?
Birth Injury Attorney in St. Louis
Cerebral palsy is a form of brain injury that can occur during, before, or after birth. Many factors can lead to cerebral palsy, such as prenatal infections, asphyxia, or other environmental influences. Although some cases of cerebral palsy are the result of natural causes, others are preventable. Many forms of medical negligence can lead to cerebral palsy, such as asphyxiation.
If the doctor fails to notice the child is not receiving enough oxygen and does not act in a timely manner, he /she could be liable for any brain damage caused by the oversight. If you believe that your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy because of a doctor's negligence, our St. Louis birth injury attorneys can help you seek financial compensation for your child's damages.
