Nationwide Representation in Medical Malpractice Claims
Microcephaly is a condition characterized by a smaller than normal head, due to the fact that the brain stopped growing or never fully developed, and is a serious medical condition that may be linked to medical malpractice. The normal human skull keeps growing until a child is approximately 5 to 7 years old, at which point the growth of the brain becomes more limited and the bones that form the skull fuse together. However, when a child sustains a serious
injury to the brain during the birth process, it may cause the brain to not grow to its full capacity. Microcephaly is typically diagnosed by the time a child reaches the age of two and is characterized by symptoms such as developmental delays, mental retardation, seizures, difficulty with muscle control and coordination, problems balancing, and more.
