Cerebral Palsy refers to a permanent and irreversible condition that affects the central nervous system, often characterized by an impairment of the body’s ability to control movement and posture. Although Cerebral Palsy may occur under the best medical care, many injuries are a direct result of the negligence of health care providers. In some cases, Cerebral Palsy is developed from events that occur shortly before, during and after birth. Once the time of injury occurs, the brain damage that causes Cerebral Palsy will remain permanent. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Cerebral Palsy, but according to medical authorities who describe it as a “condition”, the functional problems associated with Cerebral Palsy can often be improved through therapy, medication, or surgery.
