Inspiration: Doctor Overcomes Cerebral Palsy To Help Other Patients

Despite the growing awareness of the challenges that face children and families who struggle with the effects of cerebral palsy, it is hard for many people to truly understand what these people face. An inspirational doctor from Saint Louis offers a striking exception: she fought her own battle against cerebral palsy.

This doctor turned her personal experience into a professional dedication, founding the St. Louis Children's Hospital's Cerebral Palsy Center.

Cerebral palsy is just one of the consequences that can occur when an attending doctor, nurse or midwife fails to recognize and appropriately respond to the signs of a delivery complication. For the victims of this medical malpractice, the effects of cerebral palsy can last for a lifetime. 

The increased attention that many organizations are focusing on cerebral palsy offers some hope for the future - but in the meantime, families affected by these disorders face an uphill battle. If a medical mistake played a role in a cerebral palsy diagnosis, Ohio families may be entitled to compensation. An experienced lawyer can help evaluate victims' options.
