BALTIMORE, WASHINGTON, DC AND PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY CEREBRAL PALSY LAWYERS
Cerebral Palsy is a brain disorder that affects motor skills. Some Cerebral Palsy cases develop in utero of natural causes, others are caused by severe illness or infection, and some are caused negligently by oxygen deprivation or other avoidable injury during the childbirth process. Cerebral Palsy affects the nerves that control the muscles, so those that suffer from it have various kinds of permanent disabilities, including impaired fine and gross motor skills, speech and vision difficulties, learning disabilities, seizure disorders and lifetime cognitive impairments.
When the parents of a child receive the devastating diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy (CP), the parents are eager to learn if the child was born with the condition as a natural consequence of birth or if the disease was caused as a result of a medical mistake during the birth process. That is, if this life threatening condition was totally avoidable with proper obstetric and medical care. At Stecco Law, P.C., we know how devastating a birth injury is and we are prepared to sit with you, review the records and figure out what happened. We stand by our clients and guide them through the complicated process of obtaining fair and reasonable compensation for these devastating injuries and many times the work we do and the results we obtain are the difference between financial ruin and a comfortable future for the child and family.
