Overcoming the Challenges of Cerebral Palsy After an Ohio Birth Injury
An Ohio woman who has had cerebral palsy since she was injured at birth will not allow her injury to define her. She recently completed a triathlon even though she cannot walk on her own.
The young woman was able to walk across the finish line of the Springfield, Ohio, triathlon with the help of two local firefighters. This is an amazing feat, as the woman cannot move by herself and usually must communicate through a computer. She is a shining example of how a birth injury does not have to prevent someone from living a life full of highlights.
If your child has been the victim of a birth injury, he or she may also be able to complete a triathlon someday. With the right care and strong financial support, there is hope. Of course, coming up with the money necessary to give your child the care he or she needs can be difficult.
That is one of the many reasons to consider bringing a birth injury lawsuit if your child’s injuries were the result of negligence. A lawsuit sends a signal to the negligent medical professionals that inadequate care is not acceptable. But it does more than that: it can provide victims with compensation for their past and future medical expenses if those expenses derive from the negligence.
We understand the pain you are going through — the child you dreamed of, the child you were carrying, was supposed to be healthy. Now, the picture you had of your family is altered. Yet, there can be a positive future ahead for both you and your child. Each challenge you overcome together — each accomplishment you reach — will be all the more brilliant.
