Proving Negligence in Cases of Cerebral Palsy can be Challenging

There are cases of cerebral palsy that are due to prenatal complications or complications during birth that are not the result of negligence.  According to the CDC, not only is cerebral palsy the most common brain injury associated with birth but about 10,000 babies are born with this condition every year. While most children with cerebral palsy are diagnosed before age 2, the U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) reports that sometimes it isn’t spotted and correctly diagnosed until the child is 5 or 6 years old. Once diagnosed, the Texas statute of limitations on filing a medical malpractice claim is 2 years so it is crucial that you speak with a cerebral palsy lawyer to find out if negligence led to the child’s condition.

Cerebral Palsy Due to Medical Malpractice Can be Caused by:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a problem during pregnancy or at delivery
  • Failure to properly monitor for fetal distress
  • Failure or delay in performing a cesarian section
  • Injuries caused by improper use of forceps during delivery

Factors Associated with Cerebral Palsy

Sometimes the exact cause of a case of cerebral palsy is unknown but it has been found that a number of factors are routinely associated with those suffering from this neurological disorder:

Prenatal Factors

Infections, any health conditions the mother may have, instances of multiple births.

Perinatal Factors

Late-term factors include premature births, low birth weight, asphyxia
