Cerebral Palsy Lawsuits and iPad Apps
Cerebral Palsy Lawsuits
Medical professionals, including doctors, nurses and hospital staff, have a duty to protect expecting mothers, as well as their unborn child. Mistakes and errors by medical professionals during pregnancy, birth, and after delivery may result in serious injuries for both the mother and child, including cerebral palsy, or CP. A child suffering from CP brain injuries due to fetal distress or other complications that could have been avoided may be entitled to compensation.
Because the brain is the control center of the human body, any injury to it can be devastating. This is especially true for children – if a child’s brain is injured, the damages may affect the child for the rest of his or her life. To protect your rights or the rights of your child, you should contact a lawyer as soon as you suspect that brain damage is involved.

This App is one of the most popular and most recommend in connection with those diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Unfortunately, it is also one of the more costly apps. It is a text-to-speech program whereby the user taps symbols which generate speech. It can be customized and personalized, and it features a wide variety of children’s voices to chose from.
