Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects the brain and nervous system, leading to potentially severe movement problems in those diagnosed. This disorder is often caused by trauma or health complications before, during, or immediately after birth, but can still affect a child in the first few years of their life while their brain is still developing. While symptoms will not typically worsen as a child grows up, the effects of cerebral palsy can be traumatic, particularly when a child is affected more severely.
Cerebral palsy can be the result of a natural or unavoidable health complication; sadly, this is not usually the case, as the vast majority of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy develop this condition because of another person’s negligence, most often medical professionals. If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy and you believe they developed this condition because of another party’s wrongdoing, we want to put our considerable experience to work for you.
