Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
Cerebral palsy is the name given to a group of conditions that involve brain or nervous system damage, resulting in movement disorders. These conditions develop within the first few years of a child’s life, the majority of them occurring at or before birth, and are always non-progressive and non-curable, meaning they will not get worse over time, but they cannot be completely cured. Recent statistics estimate that 1 out of every 303 children in the United States will develop some form of cerebral palsy, and the sad reality is that the majority of these cases are preventable.
While any damage to the brain or nervous system of a baby could potentially result in the development of cerebral palsy, the sad reality is that the majority of these cases are caused by medical malpractice before or during the birth of a child. At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, we know just how devastating cerebral palsy can be for a child and their family, and our legal team is committed to taking action when these conditions occur as a result of medical negligence or recklessness.
Causes of Cerebral Palsy
