Cerebral palsy is a life-long medical condition that requires long-term medical services. Unfortunately, this chronic motor disability is oftentimes a result of a medical staff’s negligent acts during childbirth or their failure to address the mother’s health conditions during pregnancy.
Families dealing with cerebral palsy typically have to face a significantly high cost of lifetime cerebral palsy treatments. In 2005, for instance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the medical expenditures for children with cerebral palsy were ten times higher than kids without this condition. Furthermore, the CDC estimated that the cost of lifetime care might even be as high as almost a million dollars for each individual.
When another party has caused your child to develop cerebral palsy, our lawyers at The Driscoll Firm believe you should not have to compromise the care he or she receives. Rather, the party who is responsible for causing this disability should be held financially responsible for any ensuing costs.
