Cerebral Palsy - Cerebral palsy is a common birth injury that affects thousands of babies each year in the United States. The condition is often attributed to complications during birth, such as head injury, infection, or lack of oxygen to the baby; however, often the signs are not immediately apparent and can become visible in the child’s first year of life. Common warning signs are poor coordination, stiff muscles, unusual posture, delayed smiling or crawling or involuntary movement. Caring for a child with cerebral palsy is a taxing challenge both financially and emotionally. The Curran Firm, P.C. can help you recover the financial compensation you need to assist you and your family throughout your child’s life.
