Types of Birth Injuries: Cerebral Palsy

One of the most serious and devastating types of birth injuries is cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a term that encompasses many disorders, all of which affect muscle control and movement. Babies can be born with cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy can be caused by medical malpractice during birth, such as brain trauma or a lack of oxygen to the brain during birth. Although no two cases are exactly the same, cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition that often requires therapy, ongoing medical care, and treatment. If you believe you or a loved one has suffered cerebral palsy as a result of birth trauma or negligence by a health care provider, the birth injury attorneys of Levin & Perconti may be able to help you seek fair compensation for these injuries.
