A Birth Injury with Lifelong Consequences
Cerebral palsy is a muscle control disorder that may be diagnosed in infancy or not until preschool age, depending on the damage. When a doctor or medical professional’s negligence leads to catastrophic injury in a newborn, you can seek compensation for the damages you and your child has suffered. There are several possible causes of cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy may be caused by:
- Lack of oxygen during pregnancy or birth
- Infections during pregnancy
- Traumatic brain injury
- Fetal stroke
Cerebral palsy affects each child in a unique way. Some are not diagnosed until reaching preschool age, while others require intensive care shortly after birth. A knowledgeable birth injury lawyer in Portland can help you recover compensation for medical bills, ongoing medical care and physical therapy, pain and suffering, and other damages.
