Cerebral palsy is one of the most commonly occurring birth injuries. It is an incurable condition that permanently affects the motor coordination of the affected child and can significantly limit their ability to complete daily tasks.

It is our goal to ensure your child is properly cared for, and that the people who are responsible for causing their injuries are held accountable.

What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a motor disability that results from issues with brain development. When brain development is hindered or the brain does not develop normally, muscle control ability can be impacted.

The condition can be managed with treatment, but people with cerebral palsy often experience lifelong struggles with mobility. People who have cerebral palsy often require the assistance of devices such as wheelchairs or crutches to walk, and may need other forms of medical support as well. The symptoms of cerebral palsy can change, but the condition generally does not worsen over time.

Cerebral Palsy Symptoms

A baby who has cerebral palsy may appear abnormally limp or stiff. As a baby with cerebral palsy grows, they may be unable to meet certain developmental milestones that are typical of infants their age. For example, a baby may be unable to roll over or bring their hands together at 6 to 10 months of age. Rather than crawling, a baby with cerebral palsy may scoot or hop, or drag one side of their body when attempting to crawl.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Negligence during the birth of a child is responsible for many cases of cerebral palsy. Issues such as asphyxiation can occur during delivery and alter the baby’s brain development.

Cerebral palsy can also result from brain damage that occurs before a child is born. Injuries that occur before birth more commonly cause cerebral palsy than injuries that occur during delivery. This can be caused by negligent prenatal care of the mother and child, and medical professionals may be liable. Hemorrhage, infection, and limited blood flow are pre-birth injuries that can lead to cerebral palsy. These injuries may occur during delivery as well.

Cerebral Palsy Care and Treatment

Cerebral palsy is an incurable condition. However, proper care can help a person with cerebral palsy better manage their condition. Treatment for cerebral palsy must be tailored to the unique needs of each individual. A treatment plan may include surgery, medication, therapy, and the use of medical devices. Your family will likely need to work with a team of medical professionals that may include pediatricians, neurologists, physical therapists, and mental health professionals. At LawMD, our legal team is dedicated to ensuring your child receives the care they need.
