Cerebral Palsy Lawyers in Austin
A child’s cerebral palsy diagnosis can change their life and their family’s life forever. Cerebral palsy is a type of condition that results from a lack of oxygen to the brain during childbirth. It is one of the most severe and devastating birth injuries that an infant can suffer from. If the condition is not diagnosed immediately, it can have life-long consequences to the child and family. A child with this condition will face a lifetime of medical treatment and expensive hospital bills. Often cerebral palsy is caused by substandard medical care on behalf of a medical professional. Delaying a C-Section, improperly using vacuum extractors, misreading sonograms and misreading electronic fetal monitor strips are all potential causes of cerebral palsy.
Cerebral Palsy and Medical Malpractice
When a medical professional is negligent of his or her duty—causing a child to develop cerebral palsy—it is considered to be medical malpractice. If you are the victim of medical malpractice or you have questions concerning whether or not your child’s condition is the result of medical malpractice, you should get in contact with a personal injury attorney from our firm. The most common symptoms of cerebral palsy are apparent in the infant’s physical movement, speech, brain function, hearing and vision. Delayed development, abnormal muscle tone and seizures are the most common early warning signs associated with the condition.
