Arizona Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Has Your Child Been Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy?
If your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you should take a moment to consult experienced Arizona medical malpractice and negligence attorney Dr. Bruce G. Fagel. Cerebral palsy is a type of birth injury caused by an insufficient flow of oxygen to the brain during
labor or delivery. In some cases, cerebral palsy can be directly linked to
medical malpractice. For example, if a delivery room nurse failed to properly read the fetal monitoring strip, she may not have been aware that the fetus was in distress. Because the accepted standard of medical care says nurses should know how to read a fetal monitoring strip, that nurse (and the hospital she works for) could be held liable in a birth injury lawsuit. Similarly, if a doctor fails to deliver a distressed baby in a timely manner, and the baby consequently receives an insufficient flow of oxygen to the brain, medical malpractice laws state that the doctor can be held liable for damages.

For parents of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy, it is in your best interest to contact Arizona birth injury lawyer Dr. Bruce G. Fagel about your rights in regards to recovering compensation. Cerebral palsy is a permanent condition with irreversible side effects that affect a child's motor function, control and mobility. Because there is no cure for cerebral palsy, parents can expect to incur steep medical bills for the rest of the child's life. Not only will the child require ongoing medical care, but he or she will also benefit from speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. Although it is not a cure, this treatment can significantly improve the quality of a child's life.
