Cerebral Palsy Resources in New Jersey

Nationwide Cerebral Palsy Resource Network

As the mother of a child with Cerebral Palsy, you want to do everything you can to help your child live a full, enriching and joyful life. With the right network of support and legal representation, you can access the resources necessary to create a fulfilling and happy life for you and your child. Please see the list of New Jersey Cerebral Palsy resources below, and call us at (800)462-5772 to learn more about options available to you.

In order to create the life you want for your child, you may be seeking benefits and funds designated for children who have experienced birth injuries. Medical errors and negligence can cause an injury that leads to a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis. If there was a misstep on the part of a medical professional during your pregnancy, labor or delivery, you should request a free Medical Legal Review with Stern Law, PLLC. If your review uncovers negligence that led to a birth injury, then you and your child may be eligible for Lifetime Benefits, which are funds designated for medical treatments, living expenses, assistive technology and other things your child needs to help them live a productive, happy life. Please call the phone number listed above or use the contact form on this page to schedule your Medical Legal Review.
