Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions

child suffered from a
birth injury or is diagnosed with cerebral palsy because of an error or
negligence of a physician, learn your options today.
Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is one of the most common childhood disorders. It is a non-progressive
brain disorder, which means that the damage does not worsen over time.
The symptoms can change with time, however, and may become better or worse
as the child grows older. Many children with cerebral palsy have an accompanying
seizure disorder and some level of mental disability, along with learning,
vision, hearing, speech, or language problems.
Causes of cerebral palsy include:
- Serious diseases like meningitis
- Infections during childbirth
- Severe jaundice in the infant
- Oxygen deprivation to the brain or trauma to the head
- Metabolic and physical trauma of childbirth
- Rh incompatibility between mother and infant
