Indianapolis Cerebral Palsy Attorneys
All brain injuries have the potential to cause serious and lasting damage to the victim of any brain trauma. However, when a young or unborn child suffers a brain injury, the likelihood of serious and lasting damage is very high, as the brain is still in its developmental phases.
Cerebral palsy, or CP, is a term used to describe a number of these developmental injuries. CP describes non-contagious and non-progressive disorders that cause physical disability due to brain injuries occurring during the developmental stages of a child’s brain. Contact the Indianapolis cerebral palsy lawyers of Hankey Marks & Crider today at (317) 634-8565 if injuries to your child have resulted in cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy can only affect a young and developing brain. As such, the majority of CP-causing injuries occur during pregnancy—roughly 75%. The additional 15% of brain injuries that cause cerebral palsy occur either during birth or during childhood (up to the age of three).
Since CP is a non-progressive disorder, the initial brain damage will not worsen over the course of the affected individual’s life. However, there is also no cure for CP, and so disability resulting from cerebral palsy will stay with a person for his / her entire life.
When medical mistakes result in injuries to a young or unborn child’s brain, the individuals responsible for these mistakes must be held accountable for the pain and suffering that they have caused. The Indianapolis cerebral palsy attorneys of Hankey Marks & Crider can give you the representation you need to bring the individuals responsible for your child’s brain injuries to justice.
If your child has been affected by cerebral palsy, you need to contact a legal professional to help you get the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses.
