Boston Cerebral Palsy Information

What Is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder that restricts muscle coordination and body movement that often is caused by lack of oxygen in an infant's brain during labor or birth. Most children who have this disease are born with it and they may never lead a normal life.

Cerebral Palsy Legal Recourses

Cerebral palsy may be the result of medical malpractice. If you suspect your child's cerebral palsy was caused by a medical error, you can consult a Boston attorney experienced in cerebral palsy cases. The attorney can instruct you about the law, what you need to prove your case, and may be able to reach a satisfactory settlement without going to trial.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
