Bringing new life into this world is a wonderful and joyous experience, and we put our trust in our doctors to make sure that pregnancy and delivery are as safe and worry-free as possible. Unfortunately, mistakes sometimes happen during labor that can lead to brain injuries in your newborn. When your obstetrician does not use proper medical procedure or misuses equipment and tools during the delivery process your baby stands at risk, especially for a condition known as cerebral palsy (CP). If your newborn child has suffered brain damage leading to CP due to a negligent doctor, you should find out more about seeking financial damages by contacting a Las Vegas medical malpractice and negligence lawyer.
Cerebral Palsy is a severe condition that can result from a lack of oxygen to a newborn during and after the birthing process, and it afflicts nearly 800,000 people in the United States. Compression of the umbilical cord and other improper procedure during labor can cut off a baby’s supply of oxygen and leave him/her with permanent brain damage. Long term effects can include difficulty with reflexes, walking and swallowing, lack of muscle coordination, seizures, and trouble with precise motions. Medical care for a child with cerebral palsy requires a great amount of time and money and puts your financial security at serious risk. Normal day-to-day functions for most can be difficult for someone suffering from the effects of CP and this creates a lifetime of emotional difficulty.
