Cerebral palsy refers to a group of nervous system disorders characterized by coordination problems and other movement issues. Symptoms of cerebral palsy, which include muscle weakness and involuntary movements, typically show up within the first year or two of life. However, not every cerebral palsy case is caught early. Without access to consistent and qualified healthcare, some children can evade diagnosis until their toddler years or even later.
There are several causes of cerebral palsy. Sometimes, the disorder is inherited through family members. In others, cerebral palsy can result from a birth injury. If you or your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, the attorneys at Sommers Schwartz can help you understand your options.
