When your child has suffered a preventable birth injury such as cerebral palsy, you may be wondering about your legal rights. A Palm Beach cerebral palsy lawyer can lay out for you the options available and determine if you have a valid Florida medical malpractice claim.
Cerebral palsy is a type of condition that can be the result of a birth injury. Unfortunately there is no cure. Treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and if there are accompanying medical complications.
Some of the types of treatment that may be used include:
- assistive devices (braces, walker, wheelchair);
- anticonvulsants (muscle spasms);
- mechanical aids;
- counseling; and
- therapy (physical, occupational, speech, behavioral).
Treatment of this kind can be very expensive, especially if you are facing a lifetime of care. There may also be the need to employ outside help or use services that are also costly.
When your child’s diagnosis of cerebral palsy was caused by a preventable birth injury or a doctor’s negligence, you may be able to recover the costs associated in their care through a Florida medical malpractice claim. A Palm Beach cerebral palsy lawyer can help you understand your options for seeking compensation.
