Education on Cerebral Palsy

The Birth Injury Justice Center provides resources

The Birth Injury Justice Center has shared resources to help parents and families grappling with a cerebral palsy diagnosis. 

The Birth Injury Justice Center was founded in 2003 to provide resources and legal information for children and families who have suffered from birth-related injuries. Their mission is to educate and support those affected by medical negligence resulting in injuries at birth, offering an extensive resource for parents who have a child diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

Cerebral Palsy is a movement disorder that affects the brain’s motor functions, and it develops due to brain damage received shortly before or at the time of birth. The disorder affects many parts of the body with varying levels of severity for every case. There is no cure for Cerebral Palsy; however, there are medications and motor skill therapy options to increase brain function and improve the quality of life for those who suffer from this disorder. 

The Birth Injury Justice Center provides potential causes and examples of medical negligence that could have occured to result in a child developing Cerebral Palsy. They also offer information on the different types, symptoms, early signs and life expectancy of those with Cerebral Palsy. All medical information from this resource has been verified by Beth Carter, A registered nurse and legal nurse consultant. 

Information is also available for therapy, medication and potential surgery if necessary. The Birth Injury Justice Center can help connect families to financial assistance programs for treatments and therapy if needed. 

Case reviews are offered for those who feel they may be entitled to financial compensation due to medical negligence at the time of birth. More information and 24/7 live chat is available at the Birth Injury Justice Centers website.
