Non-Medical Causes of Cerebral Palsy
While many individuals develop cerebral palsy as a result of a negligent medical practitioner, there are some who have developed this debilitating disorder due to non-medical negligence or carelessness. Although medical malpractice is one of the most common reasons a child develops cerebral palsy, any trauma or damage done to the brain in the first few years of life can also be a cause of the disorder. However, just as a medical professional can be held responsible for their negligence, so too can another party who causes a child to develop cerebral palsy due to their irresponsibility.
At The Driscoll Firm, our cerebral palsy attorneys believe that any person who causes a child to unduly be afflicted with cerebral palsy should be held financially responsible.
