The brain is one of the most vital components of the human body. It controls all decisions and movements. This is why it is so serious when an injury impacts the brain. Brain damage of any sort can cause serious and permanent defects and negatively impact an individual’s ability to function normally. This is particularly tragic when a child or infant is the one suffering from the injury. Cerebral palsy, a brain condition caused through brain trauma, can affect children at any point in their first two years of life and has the ability to negatively affect their development and ability to function.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a result of brain trauma and frequently occurs when a child is still in the womb. However, it can occur in children up to the age of two. There are several different things that can cause cerebral palsy. Some of the most common causes include:
- Lack of oxygen to the brain
- Bleeding of the brain
- Head injury
- Infections in the mother during pregnancy
- Brain infections
Any of these traumas can be caused by the negligence or poor decision making of another individual. If a doctor’s negligence or another person’s poor decisions have endangered the well-being of your child, that person must be held accountable for their actions.
