Every year, about 10,000 babies are born with a medical condition called cerebral palsy in the United States. This means there are currently hundreds of thousands of children and adults in the country who exhibit at least one symptom of the movement disorder.
What makes these high numbers so alarming is that about 10 percent of those cases were caused by medical malpractice. More than 100,000 people must live each day with a sometimes debilitating motor function disorder that could have been prevented. That is not acceptable.
With all the advances in technology and medical knowledge, babies should not be straddled with a lifetime of challenges due to the carelessness or negligence of a doctor or medical professional. Fortunately, there’s hope.
Countless people have successfully filed lawsuits against those who caused preventable cases of cerebral palsy. Find out more about cerebral palsy and how a lawsuit might be able to help you get the justice you deserve.
