Phoenix Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
A birth injury is an injury that a mother or baby sustains before, during or immediately following the birthing process. A birth injury is a tragic event that marks what should have been a joyous day. When a birth injury was caused by a physician’s negligence, parents are often wondering how such a mistake ever occurred.
Cerebral palsy is a brain injury that is caused by lack of oxygen to the fetus. It is a serious birth injury that affects different children in different ways.

Cerebral Hypoxia & Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral hypoxia is a medical condition where the brain is deprived of oxygen. When it happens during pregnancy or during labor and delivery, it can result in mild to severe brain damage, including cerebral palsy. Hypoxia is preventable by proper monitoring of the fetus, recognition of fetal distress and timely performance of a cesarean section. Failure to perform a timely cesarean section can result in oxygen deprivation and cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy affects each child differently. Some parents may notice problems immediately at birth, and other affects can take a few years to surface. Children with cerebral palsy experience difficulties controlling and coordinating their muscles. Babies may have developmental delays, and the injury can severely limit the child’s quality of life and future opportunities.
