Mental retardation caused by medical malpractice or negligence often occurs during labor or delivery. When a woman is in labor, her attending doctors and nurses must pay close attention to the fetal monitoring machine in order to ensure the fetus is not in distress. When a baby is in distress or does not receive enough oxygen to the brain, it can lead to a birth injury or brain injury that results in mental retardation.
Not only do mentally retarded children require ongoing medical attention, but they typically also need physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, as well as special assistance at school. Dr. Fagel and his staff understand it can be quite expensive to provide a child with these resources, which is why he is so committed to helping his clients recover the compensation they need to care for their child's disability both now and in the future!
