Some cases of the negligence by doctors resulting in the development of cerebral palsy include:
— Failing to recognize infections during the pregnancy
— Failing to monitor the baby’s oxygen levels before or during birth and thus failing to recognize hypoxia leads to the development of cerebral palsy
— Causing a head injury during birth
— Failing to order a C-section when needed and thus causing the baby to be injured during birth
— Failing to diagnose the urinary tract or kidney infections in the mother
— Failing to react appropriately and in a timely manner to complications
