Cerebral Palsy

When Medical Malpractice Results in Brain Damage and Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy can be the result of an avoidable birth injury. Additionally, it can have other causes or no known cause. In order to determine if your child’s cerebral palsy was the result of a delivery room error or malpractice, a medical expert will need to review the medical chart to determine if medical negligence led to brain damage.
