The Symptoms & Causes of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a serious condition which results in neurological abnormalities and is caused by lack of sufficient oxygen to the brain, which can happen in-utero, during delivery, and immediately following the birth. It can be hard to know who is at fault when a child suffers a birth injury and there are often many people involved in your child's delivery and many potential factors to blame for negligence which leads to cerebral palsy. Issues stemming from improper care during a premature birth, head trauma, an infection from improper sterilization or clean up, or a lack of oxygen or nutrients can all lead to this debilitating condition.

A few examples of the complications cerebral palsy may cause include:

  • Difficulty talking, eating, walking, or hearing
  • Seizures
  • Learning disabilities
  • Muscle tightness
  • Speech or sight impairments
  • Bowel/bladder control issues
  • Respiratory issues
  • Hypoxic episodes
