Since there are so many factors that will affect the amount of time it will take to resolve each case, there is no good way to approximate how long your case might take without knowing more details. In some cases, it may be possible to reach a satisfactory settlement relatively early on in the process. In other cases, it may be necessary to take a case to trial, which requires substantially more time to work through. In any case, an experienced attorney will be able to prepare you for what lies ahead as you pursue compensation for your child’s pain and suffering.
If your child was born with cerebral palsy or another birth defect as the result of medical malpractice, you should speak with one of the birth injury attorneys with the Driscoll Firm about what to expect during the claims process. To discuss your claim with one of our attorneys, please call our offices at (800) 305-9800 today.
Taking care of someone with cerebral palsy (CP) demands a great deal of time, energy, and resources. As such, parents, loved ones, and care-givers of individuals with CP are more likely to become stressed and exhausted.
To help you fight the threat of exhaustion or too quickly being overwhelmed, consider the ABCs of taking care of oneself:
- A – Acknowledge that taking care of someone with a lifelong condition such as cerebral palsy can be hard, and that it is normal to be upset at times
- B – Build a strong support system by seeking out people and organizations with the same situation as yours
- C – Consider getting time off by getting help from family members, friends, or paid providers
Cerebral palsy is a condition that can, unfortunately, be a result of medical malpractice and negligence. To learn more about your eligibility in filing for a civil claim against the parties involved, consult with an attorney at the Driscoll Firm by calling (800) 305-9800 today.
