Medical mistakes during the labor process can lead to birth injuries, and the consequences of such mistakes can be devastating. If the medical staff fails to adequately monitor the mother and baby, there can be fetal distress and permanent brain damage to the baby potentially leading to a lifetime of pain and suffering. Cerebral palsy is one potential outcome of medical errors during labor.The costs associated with treating neurologically impaired infants are astronomical. We must also take into account living costs and loss of earning capacity. Severe cases of cerebral palsy require family members to provide extensive round-the-clock care.
