Cerebral Palsy and Hearing Loss
Children with cerebral palsy may develop substantial problems with important sensory abilities, such as hearing. Hearing loss can dramatically impact a child’s life, leaving them unable to enjoy many of the same experiences their peers enjoy. If hearing loss is significant enough, a child may have problems developing their language skills and may have to adjust to a life of complete hearing impairment.
If a physician’s mistakes before, during, or after delivery have caused your child to develop cerebral palsy, there may be legal options available to pursue compensation for disability treatment and management. For a free consultation regarding your rights and options as the parents of an injured child, contact a cerebral palsy attorney of the Driscoll Firm, today at (800) 305-9800.
Complications from Hearing Loss
Hearing loss can have a devastating effect on a child’s development, leaving them with life-long obstacles to overcome. Some of the complications associated with this disability may include the following:
- Language development problems
- Difficulty in pursuing certain hobbies or, later in life, certain careers
- Additional stress and emotional strain on a child
- The necessity to modify a home to accommodate for this disability
- Loss of enjoyment or quality of life due to the disability
Sustaining these and other problems as a result of cerebral palsy and hearing loss can dramatically affect a person and their family.
Cerebral palsy may leave your family with substantial financial obligations due to your child’s treatment and disability management needs. However, compensation may be available to cover these costs.
