[youtube id=”-oVg1hgRGeM” align=”right” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no” aspect_ratio=”16:9″]Most people have a general understanding what cerebral palsy is, but not everyone understands its true cause; they simply accept it as an unfortunate occurrence with no one to blame.
While this may be true in some cases, cerebral palsy is most-often caused by a brain injury that occurs during pregnancy, during delivery, or shortly after birth. Many children who were born with cerebral palsy suffered brain damage due to the negligence of a medical professional some time during the birthing process.
Depending on the facts of your case, our law firm may be able to help your family recover the compensation your child is owed, allowing you to pay for medical bills, treatment, therapy, medication, necessary medical equipment, and more. To find out if you have a valid case, call Rasansky Law Firm at (214) 617-1886 today.

Causes of cerebral palsy.

In most cases, children who have cerebral palsy were born with it, quite often as the result of a lack of oxygen to the brain or body, premature birth, or trauma during the delivery process. It’s important to understand that just because a child is born with cerebral palsy doesn’t necessarily mean that medical malpractice occurred; even under the best of circumstances and the highest prenatal care and proper delivery procedures, things can go wrong. However, when medical malpractice is believed to be the cause of a child’s development of cerebral palsy, the common causes include:

  • Failure to detect and/or properly treat infections such as meningitis during pregnancy.
  • Failure to properly monitor the fetal heart rate during labor and delivery.
  • Failure to detect the existence of a prolapsed umbilical cord during pregnancy.
  • Failure to plan and schedule a cesarean section procedure when the size of a baby prevents it from safely passing through the birth canal.
  • Making negligent and unreasonable errors when using instruments such as vacuum and forceps while delivering a baby (could be using them when not necessary or not using them when necessary).

Regardless of the reason for the development of the condition, you should also be aware of the three main types of cerebral palsy:

  1. Spastic cerebral palsy – This is the most common type of cerebral palsy and accounts for approximately 80 percent of the CP cases out there. Patients with this type of cerebral palsy have great difficulty moving, and suffer from stiffness because of tightness that exists in one or more muscle groups. They may also find it difficult to hold onto and release objects.
  2. Athetoid cerebral palsy – Athetoid cerebral palsy accounts for about ten percent of all cases of CP. Patients usually experience involuntary movement, slurred speech, problems swallowing, low muscle tone, and being incapable of maintaining posture
  3. Ataxic cerebral palsy – Those who suffer from ataxic cerebral palsy account for the remaining ten percent of cases. These patients usually suffer from problems with depth perception, tremors, difficulty coordinating movements of the muscles, and a distorted sense of balance.
