The Medical Expenses Will Be Significant

Cerebral palsy is a type of brain injury that is often caused by oxygen deprivation to the fetus during childbirth. It can result in severe developmental disabilities that may include:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Cognitive disabilities
  • Impaired motor skill functions
  • Seizures
  • Speech impairments
  • Hearing and vision impairments
  • Emotional difficulties

There are several types of cerebral palsy, and the child’s specific disabilities will depend on the type of palsy and the extent of injury. Our medical experts and life-care planners can explain how your child’s injuries will affect his or her development as well as the kinds of medical and daily care that will be necessary.

When we have calculated the lifetime cost of this care, we will seek compensation for you. We will fight hard to obtain the full amount you need so you can afford your child’s treatment.
