Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term which refers to a variety of motor conditions in humans. Such conditions are often caused by damage done to the brain during early developmental stages of life, including birth injuries. In many cases of Cerebral Palsy, human error can be pointed to as the main cause. The negligence on the part of a healthcare team/professional are often cited as contributing to, if not causing, this condition.
The physical and sometimes mental disabilities that can be part of this condition have a profound impact on the quality of life for the afflicted individual, as well as their family. Despite the fact that many families incorporate the necessary changes to their lifestyle and take great joy in caring for their loved ones, they face challenges that are unique and at times, frustrating.
Money often becomes a determining factor in the level and quality of care available to the Cerebral Palsy patient. The cost of care for individuals with Cerebral Palsy is expensive. We at Schimmerling Law Offices believe that those responsible for causing the condition, and the costs associated with it, should be held accountable.
