What Is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that is caused by brain damage during pregnancy or delivery. Brain trauma, as well as developmental problems, can result in cerebral palsy. This condition has no known cure, although treatments such as surgeries and therapies can help manage the symptoms.
Symptoms of cerebral palsy include:
- Impaired gross and fine motor function
- Impaired oral motor function
- Weak or abnormal muscle tone
- Slow reflexes
- Impaired coordination
Cerebral palsy is a chronic birth injury that could be caused by physician negligence. Doctors owe a duty of care to patients. This means they have the responsibility to provide accurate and safe treatment.
If they prescribe the wrong medication, fail to identify and treat maternal infections or fetal distress, use forceps or medical instruments incorrectly, or perform improper medical procedures during or after labor and delivery, they may be held liable for cerebral palsy.
