Cerebral palsy is a life-long movement disorder caused by an injury in the developing brain. Babies with cerebral palsy have an impaired ability to control movement, which is usually evident around 2 to 3 years of the infant’s life. Unfortunately, cerebral palsy can sometimes result from a medical practitioner’s negligent act, such as improper use of forceps during delivery, or failure to perform a C-section when needed.
