According to the US Centers for Disease Control, in the United States:
There are few situations more tragic than injury occurring to a child. And cerebral palsy can be especially devastating. Cerebral palsy is a permanent, lifelong condition that affects everything from a child’s ability to swallow and speak to their ability to walk, hear and see. Children affected by cerebral palsy often face a lifetime of pain, with the need for ongoing care and treatment. Costs for caring for those with cerebral palsy can be staggering, well beyond the reach of the average middle-class family.
The unfortunate reality of cerebral palsy is that in many cases, it didn’t have to happen—it is the direct result of medical malpractice before or during the labor process. And when this occurs, it’s important to hold those who were negligent legally and financially responsible for their mistakes.
If your child has been afflicted with cerebral palsy, you deserve answers. Could the condition have been prevented? Did your physician’s actions cause this situation? Nothing will ever truly make up for the trauma your family suffered, but getting to the bottom of the situation (and ensuring it doesn’t happen to another family) may offer some sense of closure.
