About Cerebral Palsy in San Diego
Cerebral palsy is a permanent disorder of the development of physical movement and posture. Some indications of the disorder are as:
- Disturbance of sensation, perception, cognition, communication and behavior
- Epilepsy and secondary musculoskeletal problems
It can be a traumatic and heartbreaking realization that your child will have a permanent disability and a shortened life span. A fetus can receive nerve injuries during childbirth. A fall or accident during pregnancy may affect the fetus. An injury to a small child might damage the nerves so severely that cerebral palsy develops. Our office can provide you with additional detailed information on the subject of cerebral palsy.
If medical malpractice or negligence was responsible for the injury that precipitated cerebral palsy, then a lawsuit for damages in the form of medical expenses incurred and well as future medical expenses, and pain and suffering may be an option. Long-term medical care is expensive. Our understanding and caring attorneys can help you throughout the legal process. Our legal team is available to review the facts of your matter involving cerebral palsy. It is important that you contact us today for a consultation.
