Philadelphia Cerebral Palsy Lawyer
Cerebral palsy is a term that refers to a large group of motor conditions that result in varying degrees of physical disability. The disorder exists within the cerebrum, and primarily affects a patient’s motor skills and cognitive abilities. Cerebral palsy can develop due to a variety of circumstances, but one of the most common factors leading to the disorder is medical malpractice during the course of a pregnancy or during the birth of a child.
Cerebral palsy has extremely significant long-term implications for patients and their families, and the presence of the disorder requires an enormous amount of special care and medical attention in order to manage it effectively. Such care is not inexpensive, but the financial burden placed upon the family can often be offset by way of a successful personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for this usually-preventable condition.
