Cerebral palsy is a common birth injury

As an expectant parent, you hope that everything goes as planned during labor and delivery. When this happens, there are no concerns regarding the health of the mother or baby.

Unfortunately, there are times when a newborn is injured at birth. For example, cerebral palsy is one of the most common types of birth injury. Making this injury even more challenging is the fact that some parents may not know it's a problem until a child reaches the age of one or two.

Here is what you need to do: Decide if your child suffers from cerebral palsy because of medical malpractice at birth. This is important because you may be able to receive legal compensation for the injury, which can help cover medical bills and other expenses as your child ages.

There are many causes of cerebral palsy, some of which are a direct result of medical malpractice, such as oxygen deprivation caused by an umbilical cord wrapped about your baby's neck.

In the event that a child is at risk of any type of birth injury, including cerebral palsy, the medical team must be fully prepared.
