Cerebral Palsy Detail –
Unfortunately, many cases of Cerebral Palsy are the result of improper medical treatment on the part of OBGYN and other medical providers. Children who are diagnosed with cerebral palsy have no end of medical costs and physical challenges in their lifetime. They need special equipment, medicines, educational assistance, and as they age they will also many times require legal and physical guardians. If your child has been diagnosed with this disorder and it is the result of poor treatment on the part of your health provider you do have options within the legal system to provide necessary aid for your son or daughter. Members of the Helios Legal Group have worked with the families of these children to negotiate a satisfactory cerebral palsy settlement on their behalf.
Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis
Doctors will begin to look for symptoms of the condition if the delivery had problems or was manic. In most cases, the diagnosis is made after there are developmental delays. This is because cerebral palsy is a brain injury and not all brain injuries in an infant will remain due to the body’s enormous capability to self-heal. When the diagnosis of cerebral palsy is made and a cause has been determined, specifically when that cause is negligence a cerebral palsy lawyer can assist your family in deciding the next steps.
There is Help
Insurance companies would rather settle out of court than go to court, and depending upon your attorney this may be of more benefit than to press a full cerebral palsy lawsuit. However, it is better to have an experienced cerebral palsy attorney that can help you decide if settlement versus trial is of more benefit to your child. Personal injury settlements are rarely as high as an award by jury, but in some cases they are. Hospitals and health care systems do not want to be known as a place where children are injured. The Helios Legal Group can help you decide which course of action is your best option.
