About Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy involves the impairment of motor skills and sometimes cognition due to the injury or abnormal development of the brain. Cerebral palsy can have a significant impact on an individual’s life, limiting one’s ability to engage in meaningful work activities or, in severe cases, even simple daily tasks. Furthermore, depending on the nature of the individual’s condition, cerebral palsy may require expensive medical care throughout the course of a person’s life.
One of the most prominent causes of cerebral palsy is medical malpractice during the childbirth process. If you or someone you know has had a child who developed cerebral palsy because of a doctor or other medical professional’s errors, you may be entitled to compensation to help cope with the consequences of this tragic situation.

No matter how severe an individual’s condition may be, if it was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else, the victim may be entitled to compensation to help pay for medical costs and other resulting damages.
