What are some common causes of cerebral palsy?

All Pennsylvanians care about the health of newborn babies. And, cerebral palsy is one condition that occurs if an infant's brain is traumatically injured. It can affect an infant's ability to maintain balance, coordination and motor control. Th extent of the disability is dependent on how serious the injury is and when the injury occurred.

Most women in Pennsylvania with a healthy pregnancy anticipate that they will give birth to a healthy child. However, the birth process can be complicated, sometimes, necessitating the use of certain tools, such as forceps. These tools take skill to use. If they are improperly used, it could cause the child to suffer lifelong birth injuries, as one Pennsylvania family has experienced.

Helping you hold a negligent doctor liable for birth injuries

Bringing new life into the world is an exciting event for parents. It is also an exciting career for the medical professionals that partake in the pregnancy, labor and delivery process. While much time and effort goes into planning and preparing for the birth of a child, the parent-to-be cannot always prepare and avoid any and all issues and complications. And there is one event that a parent can never prepare for -- the negligence of a medical professional helping with the birth of their child.

What's the difference between cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy?

Parents-to-be often do not focus on the risks associated with childbirth. Mothers in Pennsylvania and elsewhere may try not to think of the chances their baby could be born with a disability or suffer harm due to a birth injury. However, the unfortunate truth is that birth injuries are possible, and the life of an injured newborn could be greatly altered due to the negligence of a medical professional.

Determining the cause of a birth injury

Bringing new life into the world is a miraculous event. Parents, whether it is their first child or not, enter the child birthing process with much joy and hope in their hearts and minds. A mother and father likely do not want to contemplate any unexpected complications during the labor and delivery process. Even more so, parents do not anticipate that their new bundle of joy will suffer due to a birth injury caused by a negligent doctor.

Protecting your rights after your newborn suffers birth trauma

When it comes to healthcare, Americans are often under the impression that they are receiving top-notch care. While it is often the case the patients in Pennsylvania and other states across the nation obtain care from experienced and well-educated medical professionals, these individuals are still humans; therefore, they bring with them the chance of human errors. No one expects to be a victim of medical negligence, especially at the very beginning of his or her life. Because of that, parents are not only devastated when their newborn suffers a birth injury but also are the ones fighting for the rights and interests of their injured infant.
