Medical malpractice lawsuit filed on behalf infant brain damaged after birth injury

A medical malpractice lawsuit regarding a birth injury causing cerebral palsy has been recently filed in St. Clair County, Illinois. The suit alleges that doctors failed to appropriately resuscitate a baby after birth and did not ensure that the infant was properly intubated and monitored at St. Louis University Memorial Hospital causing brain injury. Allegedly, these medical mistakes led the baby to develop cerebral palsy, a disorder of muscle coordination and movement control that is also associated with seizures, cognitive limitations and sensory impairments.
