Birth Injuries and Investigations

Whenever a child is injured during the birthing process, the medical professionals in charge of delivering the child will launch an investigation. While medicine is a matter of life and death, it is also a science and doctors need to know how injuries are caused so that they can avoid causing them in the future. Cerebral palsy is the result of a specific type of brain injury that occurs during the birthing process, in the womb or shortly after the child is born. If a child manifests this condition, there will be an immediate investigation into how it happened.

Lab tests, scans and a host of other tools will be used to try to determine how your child came to suffer cerebral palsy injuries. If the investigation finds that your doctor was at fault for causing the injury, it may be advisable to consider filing a lawsuit for negligence.

There are other reasons that children come down with cerebral palsy, aside from birth injuries. For example, a child sometimes will be found to have contracted an illness in the hospital that led to them suffering brain damage. There are many different ways that people suffer this type of brain damage. In some cases, the condition isn’t even noticed until the child fails to reach some milestone moments in their development.

Cerebral palsy is most well-known for the effects it has on mobility. The child may have a very difficult time of it getting around and, during infancy, that translates to taking much longer than normal to roll over or perform other feats of strength and coordination. If this happens with an infant, the doctor may start to suspect that something is wrong.

People with cerebral palsy have trouble with their muscle tone. Parents sometimes notice this problem in infants because the infant has very floppy or very rigid muscles. If a child manifests these symptoms, doctors may recommend that they be tested for cerebral palsy and the investigation may occur when the child is a bit older because of it having been discovered later.

A Texas CP lawyer can give you good information about cerebral palsy. They’ll be able to let you know whether or not it’s worth it for you to consider filing a lawsuit. Cerebral palsy in infants sometimes has nothing to do with the doctor’s performance or the hospital’s professionalism. An attorney can give you personal injury information that will help you to understand birth injury lawsuits to a greater depth.
