When you are about to welcome a new addition to your Sheffield, Ohio family, you hope that he or she will be healthy and happy. And when the moment arrives, the love that you feel for your child is boundless.
Sadly, this time of momentous joy can be marred by the realization that your child was born with cerebral palsy or has developed it soon after birth.
Cerebral palsy is a permanent disorder that affects movement, muscle tone, and posture. Those who have cerebral palsy may also have difficulty with balance, learning, communication, and behavior. The signs of cerebral palsy may be immediately apparent or may show up slowly during development.
While cerebral palsy can be caused by random gene mutations, it is an unfortunate fact that this disorder is often preventable. Cerebral palsy can sometimes occur after a difficult delivery, after a lack of oxygen to the brain. In certain cases, the disorder occurred as a result of a medical professional’s failing to failure the rules of their profession.
If your child was born with cerebral palsy as a result of a hospital employee’s negligence, you should know that you have legal options. Through a medical malpractice lawsuit, you may be able to receive the compensation you need to support your family and make sure that your child receives the best possible care for their lifetime needs.
