What Causes Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a medical condition that affects a child’s muscle control. Cases can range from mild to severe. This disease may be the result of poor brain development or issues with the nerve cells in utero. However, it can also be caused by asphyxiation at the time of birth, brain trauma, untreated infections, or events in the birthing process that rupture blood vessels.
Some events that could cause this damage include:
- Failing to order an emergency C-section
- Failing to respond to signs of fetal distress
- Failing to treat an infection in the birth canal
- Failing to correct problems with the umbilical cord
- Failing to correctly use a vacuum for extraction
- Failing to correctly use forceps for extraction
If a baby is deprived of oxygen for any amount of time during the first minutes of his or her life, the consequences can be devastating. Doctors should make every effort to facilitate a safe delivery.
How Do You Prove Fault in a Birth Injury Case?
To show that your doctor, nurse, or hospital was responsible, we will need to first research the reasonable standard of care. Next, we will need to explain how your medical staff breached this professional standard. Finally, we will need to establish a certain connection between that breach of care and the onset of cerebral palsy.
What Are the Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury?
Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder caused by birth injury or brain damage that affects movement, posture, and coordination. It can cause both short-term and long-term issues for those affected. Short-term symptoms may include:
- Poor reflexes
- Rigid muscles
- Trouble swallowing or eating
- Difficulty controlling body temperature
- Difficulty with motor skills such as crawling or walking
Long term symptoms of cerebral palsy can vary from person to person but often include:
- Muscle weakness and spasticity in the arms and legs
- Impaired vision
- Problems with hearing
- Learning disabilities
- Speech impediments
- Scoliosis (curvature of the spine)
- Chronic pain in joints due to misalignment of bones
- Bowel control difficulties resulting in constipation or incontinence
- Breathing difficulties due to weakened chest muscles
- Balance issues leading to frequent falls
- Depression due to physical limitations
