Cerebral Palsy and Erb's Palsy are often caused by injuries that occur during child birth. Cerebral Palsy can result in brain damage, central nervous system issues, and long-term health problems. Between 40 and 50% of all children who develop cerebral palsy were born prematurely. Premature infants are vulnerable, in part because their organs are not fully developed, increasing the risk of hypoxic injury to the brain that may manifest as Cerebral Palsy.
People in New York know that it's illegal to drive while using a hand to hold a cell phone to their ear or, possibly worse, send a text. Everyone knows the law, but it certainly doesn't stop some people.

Recently, three people were involved in a two-vehicle accident in New York.
