Pregnancy Complications Can Be Caused by a Doctor

When you’re seeing multiple doctors and are concerned about your child’s health, you may be unsure whether the complications you’re facing are caused by a health condition of yours or the child’s, or because of your West Palm Beach doctor’s actions. 

Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell the difference. For example, your child may have suffered from oxygen deprivation, which can cause cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy can be caused by many other factors, though, such as the mother’s health or a premature birth. Because of this, you and your Florida pregnancy complication lawyer may need to talk to a doctor..
