Oxygen deprivation to the brain during birth causes 10 percent of cerebral palsy cases

While there are several factors that cause cerebral palsy, mismanagement of labor and delivery appears to be one common cause. Oxygen deprivation to the brain before, during or after birth is the cause in 10 to 15 percent of cerebral palsy cases, statistics show.

When unacceptable medical care is the cause, the negligent care giver should be held accountable and families should be compensated for the harm they have suffered. A child with cerebral palsy may need extra attention, education and special care over a lifetime. Families should not have to face these challenges alone. At Elk & Elk, our Cincinnati attorneys are here to help you.
