Do I Need A Lawyer For My Child’s Cerebral Palsy Case?

Parents of children who suffer from cerebral palsy due to a medical error do need an attorney on their side to represent them. There are multiple reasons why this is true.

First and foremost, a cerebral palsy case is very complex and requires knowledge on intricate medical and legal issues. To prove and win a cerebral palsy lawsuit, it must be proven that a medical error has occurred and was cause for your child’s birth injury. Proving this often requires resources that an individual may not have access to, but a lawyer does. This includes testimony from expert medical professionals and verification that medical malpractice has taken place, thorough investigation of the claim including the review of all medical records and reports, and professional representation in court, mediation, and/or arbitration proceedings.

Second, after learning that your child has cerebral palsy, you may be facing substantial emotional stress but also significant financial burdens. Treatment for children suffering from CP is costly and often lifetime benefits are needed. Having an attorney handle your claim will help ensure the financial security of you and your family. This is because an attorney will be able to understand what a fair settlement is for your lawsuit and will fight to ensure you receive maximum settlement.

Third, without a top-rated cerebral palsy attorney present, parents often convey information to the hospital, doctor, or negligent party that is harmful to their potential birth injury case and may prevent them from obtaining a sizeable settlement.

The most important thing to remember when considering hiring an attorney for your child’s CP case is NOT if you need a lawyer but ensuring that your hire the BEST lawyer to handle your child’s claim. These cases should not be trusted to just anyone. You need a law firm with the experience, skill and integrity that is necessary to prevail and to help you secure the future of your child and your family.
