Connecticut Cerebral Palsy Lawyers

Medical mistakes happen. No one is perfect, including doctors and medical care providers. However, when errors occur that affect the wellbeing of your newborn child, it can be hard to be so accepting and understanding. Medical errors occur for many different reasons, as you will likely discuss with your Connecticut cerebral palsy lawyer. Some of the common causes of cerebral palsy that are related to medical mistakes include:

  • Head trauma from incorrect or improper delivery techniques
  • Anoxia or asphyxia, again from inadequate delivery practices
  • Speed of delivery (too fast or slow)
  • Use of analgesics (which are known to affect the respiratory system)
  • Untreated jaundice that can become severe.

While there are just as many, if not more, environmental or non-preventable causes of cerebral palsy, that’s not what you’re here to learn about. When you have a medical malpractice claim, you have to be absolutely sure that the diagnosis points to medical error and not environmental factors or an uncertain cause. With the right Connecticut cerebral palsy lawyer, you can learn all the reasons behind this condition and how you can prove that your case is indeed malpractice and not an inherent diagnosis that would have occurred regardless of the circumstances or care of medical providers.
