Treatment Options for Seizures Linked to Cerebral Palsy
Seizures are common health concerns for children suffering from cerebral palsy. These seizures can be particularly frightening for both the child and their parents, as a child may lose control over their movements and may even stop breathing. However, there are some actions parents may be able to take to lessen the likelihood of further seizures.
If you are facing additional treatment costs associated with your child’s cerebral palsy, you may be able to seek compensation through a lawsuit against the medical professionals responsible for your child’s disability. To learn more about this legal process and how we may be able to help, contact the cerebral palsy attorneys of Driscoll Firm, today at (800) 305-9800.
Treating Seizures Caused by Cerebral Palsy
Children who have developed cerebral palsy are more likely to fall into a seizure than otherwise healthy children, putting them at greater risk for additional brain damage due to the seizure. There are some treatment options available, though. These options may include the following:
- Prescribing anti-seizure medications
- Changing a child’s diet
- Installing a pacemaker that stimulates the vagal nerve
- Surgical intervention
These options can prove to be expensive and may come as unexpected additional treatment costs for a family. If caused by a child’s cerebral palsy, though, these costs may be addressed by a successful medical malpractice lawsuit.
Treating health complications associated with cerebral palsy can put an additional financial strain on a family that may be difficult to handle. Compensation may be available, though.
