About Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a term used to refer to a group of related, non-progressive medical conditions that affect the development of motor skills and, less commonly, cognition. In severe cases, cerebral palsy may restrict the ability of the afflicted individual from engaging in even the simplest daily tasks without assistance from others. However, even mild forms of cerebral palsy can impose a significant burden on those who develop this condition, potentially limiting employment opportunities and causing other problems.
Cerebral palsy can be caused by many different factors, but medical malpractice during childbirth is easily one of the most devastating for parents to cope with.

Understanding Cerebral Palsy
Because of the wide range of effects that cerebral palsy can have, it may be difficult to understand the precise nature of your child’s condition on your own. As such, we have put together the following resources that we hope will provide you with the information you need:
- Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy
- Types of Cerebral Palsy
Regardless of the precise nature of a child’s condition, however, if it was caused by a medical professional’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation.
