Senate Declares National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day

Late last week, the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution to declare Monday, March 25, 2013 as "National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day." According to federal statistics, cerebral palsy affects around 800,000 Americans-including one of every 303 children.

This bill is the handiwork of Republican Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia and Democratic Senator Bob Casey from Pennsylvania. Both Senators issued statements highlighting the importance of increased awareness. Senator Isakson said: "I hope that Americans across the country will take time to educate themselves and others on cerebral palsy and show their support for the brave families that are affected by this disorder." 

While cerebral palsy can result from a number of factors, many cases are the unfortunate result of a medical mistake on the part of a doctor, nurse or midwife. When medical negligence leaves an infant burdened with the countless challenges of cerebral palsy, an experienced malpractice lawyer can help families explore their legal options.
