When inadequate safeguards are not in place for an unborn fetus, he or she may be critically and even fatally injured. If healthcare providers inattentively or recklessly perform deliveries, the results can be catastrophic. An example of one such type of outcome is a disorder called cerebral palsy. This disorder is the result of severe brain damage, which impedes a child’s muscular functioning throughout his or her entire life.
If you believe medical negligence in Scottsdale led to your child’s cerebral palsy, the Birth Injury Lawyers Group can offer you legal assistance. You could be eligible to receive compensation for your current losses and your child’s future medical needs. To discuss your case with us, call (800) 222-9529 now for a free case review.

Symptoms and Signs of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is most often caused before birth when a child’s immature brain has not yet finished developing. Indications of cerebral palsy may begin to display as early as infancy and will continue through adulthood. Symptoms vary widely, but often include impaired muscle movement, abnormal reflexes, flaccid or stiff arms and legs, slumped posture, involuntary spasms, unbalanced walking, and salivating.
People with cerebral palsy may also experience vision problems. They may struggle to focus their vision on one specific object. Their muscles are often rigid, and they may have a limited range of motion in the affected areas of their bodies. Some of those affected may display no signs of cognitive impairment, while others show significant cognitive disfunction. Epilepsy, blindness, or deafness may also occur.
While the specific cause of cerebral palsy will require an investigation around the pregnancy and delivery, scientists believe that a certain percentage of cases are caused by oxygen deprivation before and during birth. Oxygen deprivation can be prevented by medical intervention in many cases. If critical medical responses are not implemented on time or not implemented at all, and injuries result in the child developing cerebral palsy, hospitals and medical care professionals may be at fault for medical malpractice.
Treatments for cerebral palsy often include doctor’s visits, evaluations by specialists, physical therapy sessions, speech therapy sessions, cognitive assessments, and prescription medications, among others. These treatments accumulate rapidly, and they are often costly for many families. Thankfully, there is hope for families in Scottsdale who have incurred these costs due to the mistakes of negligent healthcare professionals.
