Causes of Cerebral Palsy ∙ Improper Monitoring

During pregnancy labor and delivery, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals need to monitor the mother and the child carefully to recognize the warning signs that a child might be at risk for cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy can be caused by:

  • Failure to monitor during pregnancy: Doctors need to recognize preeclampsia, low blood sugar, infections and other warning signs of cerebral palsy.
  • Failure to monitor during labor: Reduced blood flow, lack of oxygen and other signs should alert doctors to the possibility of cerebral palsy during labor.
  • Failure to monitor during birth: During birth, issues like umbilical cord compression or overly aggressive use of force in delivering the child can lead to cerebral palsy.

We have the experience handling these complex matters to help you determine whether the medical professionals involved were negligent.
