Although many cases of cerebral palsy are caused by the negligent actions of a medical practitioner, there is also the possibility that a child will develop cerebral palsy due to an non-medical accident early in life. However, just as it is possible to seek compensation through a suit filed against a medical professional, those who have a loved one suffering from cerebral palsy are also eligible to file a suit against any negligent parties who may be responsible.
When a child’s brain suffers from lack of oxygen or trauma, they may be at risk for developing cerebral palsy. The most common accidents that impose a risk for cerebral palsy include the following:
- Blunt head trauma
- Near drowning
- Car accidents
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your child’s accident, if someone else is to blame, a talented lawyer of Driscoll Firm can help you hold them accountable.
