/ Blog/ Was Your Child’s Cerebral Palsy Caused by Medical Malpractice?
Cerebral palsy is a lifelong neurological disorder where the parts of the brain associated with motor function become damaged early in life. This damage can be caused by a lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain before or during birth, brain malformation, abnormal brain development, or brain damage. While not all cases of cerebral palsy are caused by medical negligence, it is one of the most detrimental birth injuries caused by medical malpractice.
Unfortunately, cerebral palsy is a common disorder, but that doesn’t mean your child obtained the disease by way of nature and development. Learn the signs of birth injuries caused by medical malpractice to find out if you should hire an Indianapolis birth injury lawyer.
