Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a disorder that negatively affects an individual’s muscle tone, movement and general motor skills. In addition to physical disabilities, CP can also lead to vision, hearing, speech, or learning problems. Usually caused before or during birth, CP is one of the most common disorders of childhood, affecting about 500,000 people in the United States.

Though the cause of the disorder is unknown, there are certain factors that can attribute to CP. This can include problems in labor and delivery, maternal health problems, premature birth or infection. Some of these causes are preventable and may be attributed to another party's negligent behavior.

If your child suffers from CP and you believe someone else is blame, call the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964 today.

Types of Cerebral Palsy

The following list outlines the three types of cerebral palsy:

  • Spastic – causes stiffness and difficulty with movement
  • Athetoid – can cause involuntary movements
  • Ataxic – causes a distorted sense of balance and depth perception

The effects of CP vary in different individuals. Some may be able to continue normal lives with proper treatment, while others may be debilitated to the point where they need constant medical care. In any case, this condition can be devastating, especially if it is caused by someone else's wrongdoing. If this is the case, you deserve to bring your case to court and make sure justice is served.
