Cerebral Palsy Attorneys in Washington DC
Cerebral palsy is a general medical term used to describe chronic brain
disorders that impair a child's ability to control body movement.
The symptoms of cerebral palsy vary greatly. Signs of cerebral palsy usually
appear in the first few years of a child's life and are often first
detected by parents who suspect that their child is not developing motor
skills normally. Infants with cerebral palsy are frequently slow to reach
developmental milestones, such as learning to roll over, sit, crawl, smile or walk.
Some of the causes of cerebral palsy include:
- Oxygen deprivation to the brain during labor and delivery
- Trauma to the head during labor and delivery
- Stroke following a traumatic or delayed delivery
- Infections during pregnancy
- Jaundice in the infant
- Rh incompatibility
Cerebral palsy frequently results from avoidable
medical errors. Some studies say as many as 23% of the cases are due to avoidable medical
errors. If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, please feel
