Can a medical mistake cause cerebral palsy?

Although there are many causes for cerebral palsy, one of the most commonly investigated is an injury at or around the time of birth. If a baby goes without oxygen for any extended period of time during the labor and delivery period, the child can sustain brain damage that results in cerebral palsy. If a physician or nurse fails to recognize the signs that a baby is not doing well while in the mother's uterus and does not deliver the baby soon enough, a lack of oxygen to the baby's brain can cause cerebral palsy. Thus, if your child has cerebral palsy and you believe something went wrong at or around the time of birth, it is important that you contact our Michigan cerebral palsy attorneys to investigate the potential cause(s) of such condition.
