Catastrophic Injury Attorney in Phonix, AZ
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a general term for a group of permanent
movement disorders that cause physical disability, primarily in the areas of body
movement. CP may also cause problems with sensation,
depth perception, and communication ability.
Cerebral palsy can be caused by damage to a baby's motor control centers
during pregnancy, childbirth, or after birth.
While cerebral palsy can be unpreventable, it can also be the result of
medical malpractice. If you are concerned that your child could be suffering
from cerebral palsy due to injuries he or she sustained during pregnancy
or birth, please feel free to call our office to discuss your concerns

bleed, or even severe jaundice. Cerebral palsy can seriously affect the
rest of you and your child's life. Cerebral palsy can affect a child's
ability to walk, talk, learn, think, etc.
