Cleveland birth injury lawyer explains that Cerebral palsy is the result of damage to the brain that occurs during pregnancy, labor or birth. In many doctor malpractice cases, cerebral palsy was caused by medical tools that were used improperly during delivery of the baby.


​When a doctor uses forceps and vacuum extractors during birth brain or nerve damage can result. This can have lifelong complications, including cerebral palsy. Research by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke surmised that out of all cerebral palsy cases - approximately 10 percent were caused by a problem during delivery of the baby.

If a doctor thinks that an infant is having problems exiting the birth canal, he may choose to use a medical tool to assist the process. If the doctor uses these tools negligently during birth, it can result in cerebral palsy. When a doctor comits malpractice during delivery of a newborn, parents of the child with the birth injury are entitled to legal and monetary compensation to assist with the cost of treatment.

The two main types of birthing tools used in delivery are:

Forceps – A metal tool similar a large set of salad tongs. The doctor or nurse uses forceps to guide an infant’s head through the birth canal. Forceps can help guide an infant’s head down the birth canal. Injuries from negligent use of forceps include:

  • Brain and nerve damage
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Fractures of the baby’s head
  • Bruising and swelling of the head
  • Tears in the genital area of the mother
  • Baby develops injury causing Seizure disorder
  • Bladder and urethra injuries in the mother


Vacuum extractors – A large vacuum with cup suctions on the end. The nurse or doctor places the suction device on the sides of the infant’s head and uses it to move the infant’s position in the womb. When a doctor or nurse uses this tool negligently it can cause:

  • Fractures of baby’s skull
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Fetal stroke
  • Retinal hemorrhages
