What are the causes of cerebral palsy?
Most commonly, cerebral palsy is caused by a lack of oxygen in the brain during development, although other causes of cerebral palsy include:
- Head injury
- Bleeding in the brain
- Brain damage or injury
- Premature birth
Each of these may be a direct result of a medical professional’s failure to properly carry out his or her duty of care.
If you believe that your child developed cerebral palsy because your doctor did not sufficiently safeguard the health of your baby, you may have the right to pursue financial compensation.
