Delivery Errors Causing Cerebral Palsy

Oregon Delivery Error Lawyer With Experience, Compassion, Results

If you suspect that your newborn's cerebral palsy was caused by a brain injury that occurred during delivery at an Oregon hospital, the Law Office of Robert A. Miller is here to protect your rights in Eugene, Greater Portland and throughout the state.

I am Robert Miller, trial attorney for the law firm I founded more than 35 years ago. My proven legal skills, utmost compassion for your situation and a recognized reputation for results as a medical malpractice lawyer can protect your rights and brighten your future.

I know that many doctors and hospitals are often unwilling to deal with patients about something that has gone wrong in a medical procedure. My in-depth investigation of how you were treated as a delivery room or birthing room patient produces the answers I need - the facts that a hospital's insurance company cannot deny.

A major cause of cerebral palsy disorders is damage to motor areas in the brain that disrupts its ability to control movement and posture. If in the course of delivery the oxygen supply to the brain is severely low, an infant could sustain a kind of brain damage (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy).

As your lawyer, I will work closely with a network of medical experts whose careful review of your medical records as a delivery patient allows them to testify that your provider committed malpractice. Take action today to assure that your legal interests, and those of your newborn and Oregon family, are safeguarded.

Many cerebral palsy cases begin with a recognized brain injury such as bleeding into the brain and damage caused by lack of oxygen during delivery. Errors made by medical personnel during delivery include:

  • Excessive use of a vacuum extractor
  • Failure to detect a prolapsed umbilical cord, reducing oxygen supply
  • Improper use of delivery forceps
  • Failure to order a C-section in a timely manner
  • Failure to recognize and treat seizures after delivery
  • Failure to read or respond promptly to a newborn's vital signs, and declare fetal distress
  • Failure to diagnose and treat jaundice or meningitis
  • Failure to notify a specialist when necessary
