Anytime a newborn suffers a seizure, it is terrifying for the child's parents. In newborns, seizures are often a symptom of brain injuries, cerebral palsy or other serious conditions. Most of these conditions are caused by the deprivation of oxygen in labor and delivery. When a newborn has a seizure, it should be treated aggressively. Treatments can include medication or even surgery. When doctors, nurses and other medical professionals fail to adequately identify and treat a seizure, the newborn's condition can worsen.
If your newborn suffers from seizures, you may have questions about whether your doctors did everything they reasonably could have to treat your child. If your child has brain injuries along with seizures, you may also have questions about whether your child's underlying conditions could have been treated differently.
