Asheville Cerebral Palsy Attorney
Cerebral palsy is one of the most devastating disorders of childhood. Cerebral palsy is the term that covers a wide range of physical disabilities caused by damage to the brain during development or birth. The impairment can range from severe to mild. Movement and posture are impaired and other conditions such as intellectual impairment, epilepsy, blindness, or deafness may also exist depending on which area of the brain has been affected and the extent of the damage.
Palsy is a synonym for paralysis, but in this case has come to describe weakness and inability to make many voluntary movements and suppress involuntary ones.
Often, negligence on the part of a medical provider is the cause of Cerebral Palsy and The Elmore and Smith Law Firm, PC has relationships with experts who can help determine if your child’s injury was the result of negligent care relating to pregnancy, birth or the period shortly after the birth of your child.
While most doctors, nurses, midwives, and hospital technicians provide a high standard of care for their patients, unfortunately, many families are harmed by medical mistakes. Parents of a child suffering from cerebral palsy should contact an experienced cerebral palsy lawyer to research the cause of their child’s condition. Medical mistakes are responsible for many birth injury cases and it would be impossible for a parent, alone, to determine if medical malpractice caused their child’s injury. It is only through the dedicated and thorough efforts of a legal and medical team that the cause can be ascertained.
