March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, and our team at The Becker Law Firm encourages you to #GoGreen4CP.
Throughout the month and on National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day (March 25th), you can wear green to show your support, use the #GoGreen4CP hashtag on social media, donate to organizations like the Cerebral Palsy Foundation, or learn and share information about the condition and its impact on families.
Initiatives like CP Awareness Month are important to raising awareness among the general public. When people, schools, and businesses know more about the condition, they are better able to create a meaningful sense of inclusion and diversity in their organizations.

Our History Fighting for Birth Injury Victims
At The Becker Law Firm, we have devoted decades to fighting on behalf of victims and families who have suffered due to medical malpractice before, during, and after delivery. This includes newborns diagnosed with cerebral palsy resulting from oxygen deprivation caused by negligence.
Some of our cerebral palsy case results include:
- $14.5 Million recovery for a child born with a severe hemorrhage resulting in cerebral palsy after providers discharged a pregnant mother who had presented on several occasions for preterm labor. Six days after her discharge, the mother went into active labor, and providers failed to perform a timely emergency C-section.
- $6.5 Million recovery for a full-term baby who suffered severe asphyxia resulting in cerebral palsy and developmental delays after an obstetrical nurse mismanaged induction.
- $4.25 Million recovery over obstetrical caregivers’ failure to timely recognize maternal hemorrhage and intervene to protect the baby, who was born with cerebral palsy.
- $4 Million recovery over failure to diagnose uterine rupture, resulting in birth asphyxia and CP.
The Becker Law Firm is passionate about supporting great causes and fighting for real people who have suffered due to the negligence of others.
