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.

Proving Fault in Your 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.

We are proud to say that we have a reputation for aggressive and relentless advocacy throughout Texas. With more than 30 years of experience as a firm, we are confident in our abilities. Lead Attorney Michael Maloney is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization to work in personal injury law and all of our San Antonio birth injury lawyers have the skill and experience needed to handle your case successfully.
