New Mexico Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Cerebral palsy is a common birth injury that can often be the result of medical negligence. There are many other birth injuries that may be the result of medical negligence, but cerebral palsy is one of the more well-known injuries that can occur during pregnancy or birth. The term medical negligence refers to when a doctor or other medical professional fails to abide by or meet the appropriate professional standard of care.
People often think as physicians as those who can be medically negligent, or are involved in medical malpractice. The reality is that a nurse, midwife, anesthesiologist, or hospital can fail to provide the appropriate care, resulting in tragic and life-altering birth injury.
