Morgan & Morgan Expresses Our Support for National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month

Morgan & Morgan Expresses Our Support for National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month

During the month of March, individuals living with cerebral palsy, loved ones, and activists come together to advocate for the cerebral palsy community, and Morgan & Morgan stands proudly in our support.

The goal of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month is to push for positive change in education programs, the health care system, and the job market to provide more opportunities to those living with this disability.

Cerebral palsy is a permanent disability that impacts a person’s mobility and muscle strength. Unfortunately, some cases of cerebral palsy are caused by preventable birth injuries that stem from medical negligence before, during, or after delivery.

As the largest personal injury law firm in the nation, we’ve seen far too many cases of birth injuries that lead to life-altering conditions, and we join others in support of this special cause as we advocate for those living with cerebral palsy, both in and out of the courtroom.

“Whenever a child is injured at birth, it can be very hard to determine how severe these injuries are going to be,” says Morgan & Morgan attorney Jack Cook, who specializes in birth injury law. “Most birth injuries were avoidable, foreseeable, and preventable. Parents can leave the hospital being told that everything is fine and your child will be fine only to learn years later that the child has major health problems.”

Cook also elaborates on the importance of having legal support while dealing with a difficult discovery in your child’s health.

“If you remember that your delivery was difficult or if your child starts to have delays or is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, contact an attorney who knows how to handle these kinds of cases. It will cost you absolutely nothing to call but could cost you everything to wait.”

If you or someone you love have experienced adverse health conditions believed to be related to a birth injury, our experienced attorneys may be able to help. We can offer you a chance to tell your story and a free case evaluation to see if we can help.
