Common Causes of Cerebral Palsy in New Hampshire

Many cerebral palsy cases are caused by medical malpractice or negligence, which occurs when a health care professional does not meet the standard of care expected from them. These errors can take place before, during, or shortly after a child’s birth.

Medical errors that may result in cerebral palsy include:

  • Failing to order a C-section for a difficult delivery, which may cause the child to become stuck in the birth canal for an extended period of time
  • Neglecting to set up a delivery room in a timely manner, which can delay necessary care
  • Not recognizing or treating jaundice, which can allow bilirubin to build up in the baby’s blood
  • Using forceps or vacuum extractors improperly, which can result in various injuries to the child

These errors may lead to brain injuries, lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain, and kernicterus, all of which are common causes of cerebral palsy.

“After hours of labor, my daughter arrived unresponsive, with severe bruising and swelling on the back of her head. Thankfully, Sokolove Law fought for justice and the best care for my child. The compensation they secured for my daughter has been life-changing.”
– New York City Mother & Firm Client
