Baltimore, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/26/2017 -- Versed in both the legal and medical professions, the lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC are among the most versatile in their arena. From their office in Baltimore, they're making it their mission to fight for the victims of birth injuries like cerebral palsy, as well as faulty prenatal care. During the early months of gestation, the monitoring of fetal growth is a highly meticulous process. A misdiagnosis or negligence on the part of a prenatal doctor often endangers a mother and her child. Gershon, Willoughby, Getz, & Smith are available to defend all victims of prenatal malpractice.

While cerebral palsy is itself a complex condition, affecting a child's development in myriad ways, its cause is always brain damage. If a fetus's lungs appear to be growing too slowly, or abnormally, oxygen availability to the brain can be limited. A medical doctor, trained in the intricacies of pregnancies, must immediately prescribe prenatal steroids to avoid harm to the fetus. When these warnings go unheeded, and medication is not given, the child at birth can be hypoxic—thus leading to a lack of oxygen in the brain and, tragically, cerebral palsy.

As a direct result of periventricular leukomalacia, a child's physical and mental faculties can be hindered. Though the symptoms may reveal themselves gradually, any child and family suffering from the brain injury of cerebral palsy deserves to be assisted and compensated. Parents who suspect their children to be the victims of prenatal mistreatments should call the lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC.
