While Cerebral Palsy (pronounced seh-ree-brel pawl-zee) is a blanket term commonly referred to as “CP” and described by loss or impairment of motor function, Cerebral Palsy is actually caused by brain damage. The brain damage is caused by brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child’s brain is still developing — before birth, during birth, or immediately after birth.
Cerebral Palsy affects body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance. It can also impact fine motor skills, gross motor skills and oral motor functioning.

It could also include the decision to use surgical equipment known to be defective. Negligent death is a civil action which charges another with being liable for injury resulting in another's death by reason of negligent actions or a failure to act which could foreseeable result in death.
Health care professionals are responsible for a certain standard of care to medical patients. When such a standard is not adhered to and quality care is not given, errors attributable to the medical professional can ensue.
This may include failure of hospital staff to maintain appropriate sanitation practices, follow up on test results, or other care-based malpractice.
