Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is caused by damaged connections between the cerebral cortex and the cerebellum. The cerebral cortex is the part of the forebrain that controls higher level functions such as abstract thought and language processing. The cerebellum controls balance and muscle coordination. In other words, people with this condition have an impaired ability to control their own movements and reflexes.
About 5% of cases of cerebral palsy are caused by birth injuries, with other cases being caused by injuries during pregnancy or after birth. Birth injuries that can cause or contribute to cerebral palsy include:
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain)
- Premature birth
- Head trauma or brain hemorrhaging
- Severe jaundice
If your child suffered one of these injuries, a Minnesota Cerebral Palsy Attorney can help you create a plan of action.
