    What Is Cerebral Palsy?

    Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. Many also suffer related conditions such as intellectual disability; seizures; vision, hearing, and speech problems; changes in the spine (such as scoliosis); or joint problems (such as contractures).

    Cerebral palsy manifests itself in different ways depending upon which part of the baby’s brain was harmed during birth. Some children with cerebral palsy may only experience mild symptoms. Others may need 24-hour care.

    Cerebral palsy is incurable. But, medical treatment can improve cerebral palsy victims’ lives. For example, physical therapy may loosen stiff muscles. Speech therapy may help your child communicate. Early therapy can also prevent those symptoms from worsening over time.

    What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

    Cerebral palsy is often caused by preventable medical errors during childbirth. If your doctor failed to diagnose or treat any the following conditions, you may have a medical malpractice claim.

    • Fetal distress
    • Oxygen deprivation
    • Jaundice
    • Intercranial hemorrhages
    • Neonatal infections

    If you’re unsure how your child developed cerebral palsy, you should call a cerebral palsy lawyer. Your lawyer will order all of your medical records. Then, your lawyer will hire a medical expert to review them. If that expert determines that your doctor violated the standard of care and harmed your child, you may file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

    A lawsuit is often the first step on your child’s road to recovery. Legal rights, however, are time-sensitive due to the statutes of limitation. Given those limitations, you should contact an experienced birth injury law firm ASAP.
