Causes Of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is caused by damage to the motor centers of the brain. This damage can happen in the womb, during delivery or in an accident as an infant or young child.
The most common causes of cerebral palsy before or during birth include:
- Head injuries during labor
- Lack of blood or stroke
- Lack of oxygen
Our legal team often works with medical experts in obstetrics and other related medical fields in order to determine who may be liable for your child's injuries and cerebral palsy. We also consult with medical professionals in order to understand the full impact and cost of your child's care into the future. With this evidence and information, we can help our clients pursue the compensation needed to cover past and future medical expenses and other out-of-pocket costs.
