Cerebral Palsy Linked to Medical Malpractice

Cerebral Palsy Linked to Medical Malpractice

For many people with cerebral palsy, the condition has limited affect on their lives. However, others may be profoundly affected. The degree this birth injury alters ones life differs from person to person. Some life long issues may include physical pain and distress, the need for ongoing treatment and therapies, and potential social alienation - inlcuding diffuclties finding work, dating/getting married, and living independentally as an adult.

While not all instances of cerebral palsy are the result of medical malpractice, the two have been linked. Where a birth injury occurs due to negligent medical treatment, it may be possible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. For individuals living with cererbral palsy, this can provide the resources necessary to pay for their care both before they reach adulthood, and after. Parents of children who suffer a biirth injury may receive money to provide for care and resources they couldnt afford on their own, and when those affected with this condition become adults, the money can help provide security.
