Dedicated Houston Lawyers for Families Impacted by Cerebral Palsy
Causes of cerebral palsy may include:
- Obstructed delivery: When delivery is obstructed, instruments such as forceps are used incorrectly or there is a lack of oxygen to the brain, it can result in cerebral palsy.
- Failure to properly monitor conditions: Delivery room doctors and nurses are trained to monitor birth mothers and fetuses for fetal distress and changes in heart rate. In some cases, an emergency C-section should be performed. Failure to do so can worsen the baby’s condition.
- Medication and anesthesia errors: When birth mothers are oversedated or errors are made when providing medication, injuries can develop in both the mother and the fetus.
In many pregnancies, cerebral palsy can be prevented with proper monitoring of the fetus and mother. In instances of twins and other multiple births, birth mothers who are older than 35 and when placental problems have developed, additional monitoring may be necessary.
