While medical malpractice claims are complex, injuries to infants present emotionally charged issues as well. Avoidable mistakes that lead to a life of physical challenges or around-the-clock care break the bond of trust parents had with their physician.
Cerebral palsy in newborns can result from a variety of conditions and errors that could have been prevented. Forced labor, improper delivery tools and other complications during the delivery can have devastating consequences if an infant suffers head trauma or a lack of oxygen from anoxia or asphyxia.
