Understanding cerebral palsy and birth injuries

Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for a range of neurological disorders that can impact a child's movement, coordination, and muscle control. While there are several causes of cerebral palsy, birth trauma can often lead to its development, particularly when the baby's brain is deprived of oxygen during labour or birth. This deprivation of oxygen, known as birth asphyxia or hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), can result in brain damage.

Symptoms associated with a baby suffering from HIE include hyper-alertness, irritability, eye-rolling, abnormal movements such as seizures, and reduced awareness. Premature babies who are unable to breathe independently are especially susceptible to brain damage if they are not promptly ventilated. Expert opinion suggests that 8 to 12% of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy experience oxygen starvation during birth.

Making a claim for compensation

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, it may be necessary to make significant adaptations to your life and your home to provide the care they need. You may even have to give up work to be their primary caregiver. In cases where medical negligence is believed to be the cause of the brain damage, you may have grounds to make a claim for compensation.

At Calio Claims, our specialist cerebral palsy claims lawyers have extensive experience in handling medical negligence cases. We understand the impact that cerebral palsy can have on your family's lives, and we are committed to ensuring that you are compensated for any financial losses, and the pain and suffering your child may endure.

The role of oxygen flow in birth injuries

During childbirth, the majority of births are relatively straightforward. However, there are instances where complications arise, and the restriction of oxygen flow can create a dangerous situation. Adequate oxygen intake is crucial for a baby's development in the womb, and if this flow is interrupted, it can result in organ damage. The brain is particularly vulnerable to oxygen deprivation, especially if the lack of oxygen persists for an extended period of time.

Seeking legal assistance for birth injuries

While there are various causes of HIE and cerebral palsy, it is essential to recognise that negligent medical actions by hospital staff can sometimes lead to oxygen deprivation in a baby during birth. If you suspect that medical negligence played a role in your child's brain injury, it is crucial to consult with a specialised cerebral palsy claims lawyer.
