Was My Child's Cerebral Palsy Caused by a Birth Injury?

Houston Cerebral Palsy Causes Lawyer

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a broad term that describes a range of noncontagious, nonprogressive congenital disorders that affect children. CP affects children in various ways, often involving motor skills and muscle coordination. Symptoms of CP can include seizures, involuntary movement, problems with hearing and speech, and trouble concentrating.

There are many potential causes of cerebral palsy. Some children acquire this disorder after contracting a serious infection. Approximately 10 to 20 percent of CP cases are caused during or right after delivery, sometimes due to a medical error. Sometimes, the cause of cerebral palsy remains a mystery throughout the child's life.
