Why NOW Law

Cerebral Palsy and the Law

Cerebral Palsy is a devastating condition affecting the brain and central nervous system of an infant or child. It’s often attributed to complications, such as oxygen deprivation, head trauma or brain damage occurring before, during or shortly after delivery. It can be caused by preventable medical mistakes made by a doctor, nurse, midwife or medical professional.

The special needs of a child who has cerebral palsy affect the whole family and can impose physical, emotional and financial hardships. The condition is associated with a lifetime of expensive therapies and costly interventions.

If your family has been affected by cerebral palsy, you understand that it’s much more than a diagnosis. Watching your child suffer from unnecessary pain and suffering, while you struggle to keep up with medical bills, constant doctor’s office visits and painful procedures can be heart-wrenching.

Because cerebral palsy is often caused by medical errors or complications, families of children diagnosed with cerebral palsy are frequently entitled to compensation. In many cases, a lawsuit is the best way to ensure a positive outcome for your family’s financial future.
