Because Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a non-progressive health condition, it does not necessarily worsen over time. However, there are some potential health issues and long-term concerns that may become pronounced as the child ages.
These long term concerns include, but not limited to:
- Flexibility and motor control problems that may become more restrictive for a child’s lifestyle
- Problems with eyesight that may make school, driving, and other activities difficult
- Cognitive and learning disabilities that can make schooling difficult to handle
- Disability-related stress that can create significant emotional and behavioral problems
Parents of children who suffer from brain damage as a result of CP or medical error on behalf of a doctor or other medical professional do have legal rights and may be able to receive compensation. This often includes significant funds necessary to care for the child throughout their lifetime.
