Information about cerebral palsy

Hundreds of children are born with cerebral palsy each year in North Carolina, inflicting them with brain damage that affects them both cognitively and physically. While cerebral palsy is not curable, it can sometimes be detected early, making its effects potentially less disabling. In some cases, cerebral palsy is caused by human error when doctors fail to make sure an infant has enough oxygen during birth. Parents who believe their child's cerebral palsy could have been prevented can contact a North Carolina attorney to learn more about their legal options.
