Any error from doctor’s part during labour can cause cerebral palsy.The doctor must be extra careful and must make sure the baby gets enough oxygen.There are many ways oxygen can get restricted due to the constriction of the umbilical cord or the neck, pressure on the cranium, poor oxygen exchange in the placenta and the trauma.These are few of the causes of cerebral palsy.If your baby has suffered from brain injury during birth,then you are entitled to seek legal aid by consulting a cerebral palsy lawyer and get your compensation and claims.
