Cerebral Palsy Injuries & Brain Injury Lawsuits
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Dec 30, 2013 in Medical Malpractice
Cerebral palsy is a brain condition that affects muscle movements. Those with this condition usually show signs of it when they are an infant or young child under the age of three. This brain condition can occur from a number of situations, including genetics.
However, many times, it is the result of an injury and due to the negligence of another.

What Are Some Common Risk Factors of Cerebral Palsy?
During pregnancy, it is possible for a baby to develop cerebral palsy due to infections or blood defects that may occur. It is a medical professional's duty to spot these problems and to try and prevent serious damage from occurring.
When a doctor in Maryland fails to notice certain things during a woman's pregnancy, it can result in the baby developing this condition.
With this in mind, some common risk factors Include:
- Head Injury
- Bacterial Meningitis
- Brain Bleeding
- Pregnancy Complications
- Birth Complications
- Negligent Medical Professionals
- Lack of oxygen
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
Another common situation in which this condition may occur is during the delivery to the baby. If a Maryland doctor makes any delivery errors or fails to properly address any complications that occur during the delivery process, the child may develop cerebral palsy. Young children can also develop this condition if they experience head injury.
Our lawyers can help you receive the compensation you and your child deserve.
