It hampers their vision: one in ten cannot see properly. Also, Cerebral Palsy is associated with other serious medical issues such as autism, epilepsy, chronic pain, and learning disabilities.

As you can see, Cerebral Palsy can touch nearly aspect and dimension of your life or your children's lives if they are suffering from it. Some of our most core aspects of living are endangered. Merely walking around can be cumbersome. Those most at risk normally have a learning disability, visual disability, or epilepsy. Language is also difficult because Cerebral Palsy weakens the mouth, throat, and lung muscles that produce speech. Even if they can create words, they are often hard to interpret or understand. Finally, Cerebral Palsy reduces the mind's abilities. It lessens a person's skills to organize, focus, and sequence. This puts them at a disadvantage for school and the workplace and much, much more. Obviously, this terrible condition affects people in more ways than this but hopefully these points underline the tragic toll Cerebral Palsy takes.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case. In addition, Jonathan was understanding and patient pertaining to any of my questions or concerns. I was very happy with the end result and I highly recommend Jonathan Rosenfeld. Michonne Proulx
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim
Jonathan helped my family heal and get compensation after our child was suffered a life threatening injury at daycare. He was sympathetic and in constant contact with us letting us know all he knew every step of the way. We were so blessed to find Jonathan! Giulia
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
