Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disease that usually manifests during the early years of a child’s life, and is the beginning of a range of disorders that can affect the control of movement in some way. The symptoms of this disease arise before the age of three, and the causes of cerebral palsy can vary. There are a number of signs that can present themselves during the early years of a child’s life, and could indicate the presence of cerebral palsy. In some cases, it can be difficult to diagnose cerebral palsy because some of the symptoms may be so subtle that they are barely noticeable.
If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, there may be a connection between the improper pre-natal or birth delivery care and the development of this condition. In order to determine if there is a viable case to pursue, it must be established that the negligence of the physicians or medical staff are responsible for the development of the child’s cerebral palsy.
Buckfire & Buckfire P.C handle cases involving cerebral palsy injuries. This can be a very serious condition and can affect a child throughout his or her lifetime. There are occasions in which this injury could have been prevented and this can give rise to a child birth injury medical malpractice lawsuit.
In many cases, the cause or causes of congenital CP are unknown, which means that currently little can be done to prevent it. CP related to genetics is not preventable. However, there are actions people can take before and during pregnancy, as well as after birth that might help reduce the risk of developmental problems, including CP.
Proper precautions can be taken to ensure a healthy pregnancy, and help prevent developmental problems, such as CP. Acquired CP often is related to an infection or injury, and some of these cases can be prevented.
