Cerebral Palsy Can Be the Result of Medical Negligence — Our Lawyers Will Pursue Justice On Your Behalf
Cerebral palsy is a catch-all term for a specific group of conditions and symptoms caused by congenital defects or birth injury. It occurs in approximately two out of every 1,000 births and can be caused by medical negligence. If you believe that your baby’s cerebral palsy is the result of poor monitoring during birth or error on the part of the doctor during delivery, you need to consult with a Houston attorney experienced in handling cerebral palsy cases.
If you have a child with cerebral palsy that may have been caused by the negligence of your doctor, it is important to talk with an experienced attorney to determine whether the birth injury could have been prevented.

Common Causes of Cerebral Palsy
While cerebral palsy can simply occur in a child, in some cases it is the result of errors made by doctors, nurses and hospital staff. Some possible causes for cerebral palsy include:
- Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely manner
- Leaving the child in the birth canal for an extended period
- Lack of oxygen to the child during labor and delivery
- Misuse of forceps or vacuum, resulting in birth trauma
- Failure to recognize and rectify a prolapsed umbilical cord
It is important to have a medical expert review your child’s medical records to determine if cerebral palsy was caused by medical negligence. Our lawyers consult with these experts to ensure that you have answers as to what happened and why. We will pursue compensation on your behalf and hold those responsible for the harm done to your child accountable for their actions.
