Benefits of Early Identification of Cerebral Palsy

Welcoming a baby into your family is supposed to be a joyous occasion. Unfortunately, though, 28,000 newborns suffer from birth injuries every year across the United States. One especially devastating birth injury is cerebral palsy, a disorder that affects the brain and can lead to both cognitive and physical disabilities. There is no cure for cerebral palsy, but a cerebral palsy victim’s parents can help their child by starting therapy as early as possible to increase the child’s quality of life.

When doctors act recklessly in the delivery room, the results can be disastrous. Cerebral palsy is one of many tragic results of medical malpractice. To learn more about how a skilled legal representative can help you take legal action against the negligent medical professional who harmed your child, contact a Louisville injury lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

How Early Identification Can Help

If your child develops cerebral palsy as the result of a birth injury, he or she may require extensive medical care and ongoing therapy in order to increase his or her chances of living a normal life. These treatments, although not a cure for cerebral palsy, can help a child retain muscle functionality.

Early identification of cerebral palsy is important because it allows a child to receive treatment sooner, which can lead to benefits including:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Increased motor control
  • Reduction of the amount of stress on muscles
  • Education of good stretching and physical therapy habits from an early age
  • Prevention of any further complications

Frustratingly, this treatment can be costly, but your family may be entitled to financial compensation from the doctor at fault for your child’s cerebral palsy to help pay for this medical care.
