Your Houston-Based Hydrocephalus Lawyers

Hydrocephalus was once known as “water on the brain” as it is characterized by excessive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, excessive accumulation of CSF results in abnormal widening of the spaces in the brain called ventricles. Hydrocephalus may be congenital or acquired. Congenital hydrocephalus is present at birth and may be caused by events or influences that occur during fetal development. Acquired hydrocephalus develops at the time of birth or at some point afterward and may be caused by injury or disease, such as a spinal injury. If you believe the condition was a result of negligence or malpractice, you may want to consult with a spinal injury lawyer for guidance.
