What can cause Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a terrible condition suffered by too many children unnecessarily. With its progressive motor function disorder it can severely limit a child’s life chances and cause immense hardship for the whole family.
Undetected problems during labour – such as reduced oxygen supply to the baby – are often the cause. But things can go wrong even after birth. Errors made after delivery, failure to diagnose serious illnesses such as meningitis, undetected injuries – all of these can contribute to the development of cerebral palsy, a condition for life and to which the only answer is compensation.
