Cerebral Palsy Injury Attorney
Cerebral Palsy (cp) is an umbrella term encompassing several non-progressive neurological physical disabilities in the development of human movement and posture. disturbances in the developing fetal or infant brain are a major cause of the disability. Motor disorders are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, cognition, communication and perception.
Anything that interferes with the development of the nervous system by impeding oxygen or nutrition from reaching the brain can contribute to cerebral palsy. At the time of birth, oxygen loss can occur from uncorrected problems with the umbilical cord, placenta damage that compromises blood supply to the fetus, or fetal distress arising from the fetus being stuck in the birth canal. after birth, especially in premature births, cerebral palsy can arise from untreated complications with the cardiovascular, respiratory or digestive system, and from untreated seizures. In all these cases, it is possible that damage could have been avoided or that improper medical procedures contributed to the problem.
Symptoms of cerebral palsy include spasticity, seizures, delayed or abnormal development, paralysis, and mental retardation.
Cerebral palsy victims require specialized care and therapy and will need assistance throughout their lives, depending on the severity of the disorder. Added to the cost of such intensive long-term care is the loss of enjoyment of life that the victim experiences.
