Welcoming a new child into the world is a prize. As a parent, the immense love you feel for that baby boy or girl is beyond anything else in this world. As such a fragile human being, parents only want to protect their baby and ensure that he or she leads a happy, healthy life.
Sadly, in some situations, the delivery of a child can include complications that result in injury to the newborn. Events such as human error, difficulties, and misuse of technology may result in a birth disorder like cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy affects a child’s movement and muscle development for the rest of his or her life. The disorder is most often caused by some damage to the developing brain of the child in utero or during birth.
If your child is suffering from cerebral palsy, several factors could have contributed to the development of the disorder. Infant infections, maternal infections, and lack of oxygen to the baby’s developing brain are just a few of these factors.
Unfortunately, the medical professionals we put our trust in could have played a role in these types of injures. Physicians involved in the pre-natal process or delivery may not have followed rules in place for the safety of you and your child.
Even our trusted doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals in Elyria, OH and the surrounding areas can make mistakes and decisions that might affect the life of your child from birth. In most cases, our Elyria doctors have our best interest and health in mind but birth injuries still take place.
An experienced birth injury attorney in Elyria will be able to work with you and answer your questions about your child’s injuries and whether medical malpractice played a part in your child’s development of cerebral palsy. At Brian K. Balser Co. ￼LPA, we investigate every unique case closely and work directly with the family to make sure your concerns are addressed and peace of mind restored.
