West Virginia Birth Injury Lawyer
Cerebral palsy is caused by oxygen deprivation during birth. Insufficient oxygen is capable of causing brain injury. This kind of deprivation may lead to developmental problems that may not be obvious until your child is a few years old. Medical malpractice that ultimately leads to cerebral palsy usually occurs during pregnancy, childbirth or soon after. Insufficient oxygen may be caused by:
- Failure to properly monitor the mother or child's vital signs
- Mistakes made during delivery
- Infections contracted during birth or shortly after birth
We handle cases against doctors, nurses and other health care professionals responsible for causing these kinds of birth injuries on a regular basis, acting as lead counsel in several cases and also as local counsel alongside nationally recognized attorneys.
We also handle pediatric cases that lead to serious injury, including a recent pediatric anesthesiology case involving grossly negligent medical care during surgery on a two-week old child.
