Lawsuit: girl's cerebral palsy the result of poor delivery care

One condition that children here in Connecticut sometimes suffer from is cerebral palsy. This condition can have many impacts on a child and can lead to a child facing significant care needs through the entirety of their life.

There are many different things that can lead to a child developing cerebral palsy. One such thing is delivery-related negligence. Thus, it is extremely important for medical professionals and medical facilities to not act negligently when providing care in relation to the delivery of a child.

Recently, a birth injury case involving allegations of delivery-related negligence has arisen in another state.

The case involves a woman who gave birth to a daughter at a hospital in Texas in July 2011. The woman claims that medical professionals at the hospital committed negligent conduct (including failing to properly communicate with each other and failing to properly monitor her) in relation to the delivery of her daughter. According to the woman, this alleged negligence led to her daughter being born with cerebral palsy.

A lawsuit has been brought by the woman against the hospital in connection to these allegations.

No child should have to suffer cerebral palsy or other harms due to the negligent actions of a medical professional or medical facility. Thus, one hopes that medical professionals and medical facilities are held accountable when they commit harmful delivery-related negligence.

If a person with a child with cerebral palsy suspects that their child's condition was caused by medical negligence, they may wish to consider speaking with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help such a parent determine what relief-seeking options are available and can help guide them through the many complex processes that can be a part of pursuing such options.
