Not all cases of mental retardation are caused by medical malpractice, as there are many genetic causes of mental retardation at birth. However, there are many cases where mental retardation results due to errors or negligence on the part of medical professionals during the labor or birth of the child. When this occurs, contacting our Las Vegas medical malpractice and negligence lawyer is vital to your child’s future.
Mental retardation is basically an inability of the individual to have the mental capacity to perform tasks in a normal fashion. This condition can range from mild to severe, disabling the individual in varying degrees. Some forms of mental retardation can be so severe that the person is unable to care for themselves at all, not even in being able to walk unassisted. Others may have motor control problems but may be able to perform simple tasks. Regardless of the severity, a person with this condition is hampered for life and requires lifelong care. If your loved one suffered a brain injury due to lack of oxygen or other situation during the birth process, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages suffered.
