Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2017 -- Of all the tragedies that can occur during childbirth, those encompassed by the disorder of cerebral palsy are among the most unwarranted, and the most unfortunate. While the attorneys at Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith focus on cerebral palsy and all of its causes and consequences, the firm also focuses on bringing justice to families devastated by other forms of medical malpractice. In fact, the lawyers of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith are able to assist victims who suffered from diabetic comas.
It is a doctor's responsibility to be vigilant and responsive. However, some neglect to act on lab results and measure blood sugar levels properly. Because of this, a doctor can be held responsible for diabetic comas and the complications that may follow. Delays of this kind can even prove detrimental to the health of mothers and the babies they deliver. Any appearance of diabetes during pregnancy risks a newborn's quality of life.
As the doctors and lawyers of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith tell their clients, diabetes, if not correctly controlled by a physician, can directly complicate the labor process—making the likelihood of asphyxia all the greater. As research has demonstrated, children born with cerebral palsy are all the more likely to be diabetic themselves. Already stressful and costly, the two conditions together bring even more health risks into the lives of children and their parents.
Any parent who may have suffered diabetes or a diabetic coma during pregnancy is invited to contact the birth injury attorneys of Gershon, Willoughby, Getz & Smith, LLC. Whether in Baltimore, or any other surrounding area, they serve families all throughout the nation. Call them today at 877-292-6491.
