As an umbrella term, cerebral palsy actually refers to an entire group of disorders and brain injuries that affect infants. While they can predominantly occur while the child is still in the womb, they can actually occur for up to the first two years of the child's life during the fast development period. Common causes of these disorders include bleeding in the brain, infections, head trauma and jaundice in certain circumstances. As broken down by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, symptoms differ depending on the different type occurring, but include the following:

Pursuing Compensation in Cerebral Palsy Cases
legal and medical issues
Cerebral Palsy is often used to describe brain damage caused during labor and delivery. It is widely accepted that a significant percentage of these cases are the result the interruption of oxygen to a baby in distress during the birth process. While this terrible situation can often be recognized and prevented through proper management of labor and delivery, when disaster strikes and the child is brain damaged, the doctors and hospitals often fight relentlessly against the charges.
Fighting these cases requires experienced lawyers
In fact, the national organization of obstetricians, ACOG, has continued to put out "guidelines" that attempt to justify even the most egregious malpractice. Fighting these cases requires experienced lawyers who are knowledgeable regarding the legal and medical issues involved. These lawyers must work with obstetricians, perinatologists (maternal-fetal medicine specialists), pediatric neuroradiologists, pediatric neurologists, neuropsychologist, economists and other experts to have the best chance of recovering compensation to care for and treat the child suffering from such birth injuries.
Children with cerebral palsy may not be able to speak, walk, eat or play in the same ways as most other children. Depending on the location and extent of the brain damage, some cerebral palsy children may display mental retardation, motor function disability, or both. Current treatments are not able to reverse the condition, and the child will be facing serious challenges throughout their lives.
