If your child has developed cerebral palsy as a result of a birth injury, you may be able to pursue compensation for those injuries through a Florida medical malpractice claim.
The prognosis of cerebral palsy will depend on the severity of the condition. Some individuals are able to live fairly normal lives, others may be facing a lifetime of expensive care and treatment.
There may be additional medical disorders accompanying cerebral palsy including mental impairment, hearing loss or seizures. Medication, along with care for education and social services may be necessary.
Due to some of the complications with walking and balance, an individual may become permanently disabled. You may be entitled to damages for this.
Many individuals with cerebral palsy also require the help of an assistive device such as a wheelchair, walker or braces. These can be expensive types of treatment that are recoverable through a Florida medical malpractice claim.
Although assistive help may be available for someone with cerebral palsy throughout his or her lifetime, these are costly services. When medical negligence is the cause of your child’s suffering, you may be able to recoup some of these costs through a Florida medical malpractice claim.
Consulting with a Palm Beach cerebral palsy lawyer should be your next step if your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and you plan on pursuing a Florida medical malpractice claim.
