A cerebral palsy lawyer may be able to help you if your child has been diagnosed with this cerebral palsy shortly after birth.
Cerebral palsy can cause severe physical and cognitive problems for a child, and it may end up meaning that they need very expensive treatments. Of course, as is the case with most medical treatments, this can be quite expensive. Parents always have a desire to get the best for their children, and a lawsuit may allow you to recover the compensation needed to ensure your child lives a healthy and comfortable life.
Not every case of cerebral palsy is caused by medical malpractice, but if you believe your child’s injuries could have been prevented, it’s worth seeking out a free consultation with an attorney to know where you stand, and to understand your options.
When to Contact an Attorney
The best advice for contacting a cerebral palsy attorney is to act quickly. When a child suffers a birth injury, there is a limitation on how long the parents have to file a claim. An attorney can tell you what limitations apply and can make sure that you don’t wait so long that you miss your chance to pursue your claim.
The attorney won’t charge you anything to consult with them, and they don’t even charge you to hire them. These types of attorneys work on contingency, meaning that you only pay attorneys fees if they actually win your case and put money in your family’s pocket.
The attorney should have considerable experience working with CP cases, as that will make a big difference. If you want the best chances of winning your case, go with an attorney that has won these cases in the past.
Going to Court
Going to court is intimidating, but a good attorney will do everything they can to prepare you for this. Not all cases go to court, but your attorney can explain this to you in detail. In all likelihood, there will be a lot of medical information given and requested during the discovery phase, which could result in an out-of-court settlement. It’s impossible to know if your case will be successful, but a good attorney will increase your chances a great deal.
