Minnesota Cerebral Palsy Lawyers

Premature birth is one of the many causes of cerebral palsy. When babies are born prematurely, their brain can be malformed or damaged in some way, causing them to develop this condition. Most people who suffer from this condition are born with it, and premature infants are far more likely to have cerebral palsy than full-term babies. Cerebral palsy technology is helping create healthier pre-term babies who are better able to survive, but there is still no way to prevent newborns that are premature from getting this disease.

Infants who are at the greatest risk for developing or having cerebral palsy include ones facing:

  • Low birth weight
  • Birth prior to 37 weeks
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Jaundice that is left untreated
  • Multiple births
  • Breech births
  • Medical mistakes made during labor and delivery

By eliminating as many of these situations as possible, it is going to be easier to lower the number of babies who develop or who are born with cerebral palsy. Until then, parents of children who suffer from this condition will simply have to learn how to make life bearable for themselves and their children.
