Types of cerebral palsy claims
Cerebral palsy is very often attributed to damage sustained at birth. By obtaining funds that are fundamental to your child’s health and well-being, you will be able to afford such things as specialist education, training, care, therapy and purpose-made accommodation.
Cerebral palsy can be attributed to any type of condition that affects your child’s movement and coordination. If the birth of your child was not straightforward and failures occurred during the procedure, brain damage could have occurred. Oxygen deprivation can also be a major cause of this condition and could quite simply be the result of your midwife or obstetrician not interpreting test results correctly. Any of these situations, if shown to be caused by an act of medical negligence, could qualify for a cerebral palsy claim.
Some of the main causes of cerebral palsy are:
- Oxygen deprivation during birth
- Low blood sugar being untreated, or not diagnosed
- Jaundice being left unattended
- Meningitis, or some other similar condition, not being detected
