What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a general medical term that refers to a physical condition wherein brain damage occurs and results in a loss of motor control. Depending on the nature and severity of brain damage, cerebral palsy may not be diagnosed until the child is up to several years old.

There are many different types of cerebral palsy, thus the symptoms are broad but generally include:

Brain damage that leads to a diagnosis of cerebral palsy can occur during pregnancy, during labor, during childbirth, and even during early in a child’s development years. Under many circumstances, brain damage is not preventable, in others, a child’s suffering could have been avoided — for example when a doctor does not diagnose or treat an infection in the mother during pregnancy or also when a doctor fails to address fetal distress during childbirth. This could result in asphyxia or brain hypoxia, which is a lack of oxygen to the brain. These are two examples of possible medical malpractice. Our Phoenix cerebral palsy attorneys hold negligent doctors, medical providers, and hospitals accountable for negligence that causes a child to suffer a preventable birth injury.

Caring For Children Living With Cerebral Palsy

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, it is important for you to determine if there may be sources able to provide compensation that will allow you to properly care for your child. We have recovered large sums of money that have allowed children affected by preventable birth injuries to access the best medical care, disability accessible housing, speech, physical, and occupational therapy, college tuition, and more.
