What type of compensation can a parent
receive from child’s cerebral palsy lawsuit?
As a parent of a child who is diagnosed with cerebral palsy due to another’s negligence, you may be able to receive compensation in addition to the compensation received in your child’s cerebral palsy lawsuit. The money received will help for payment of past and future medical expenses related to your child’s CP including lifetime benefits, any lost wages if incurred to take care of your child, as well as any pain and suffering you may be experiencing.
A parent is elgible to file an individual claim when their child’s CP was caused by a medical mistake and due to their child’s condition they have had to expend money out of their own pocket for extra ordinary benefits meaning extra physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, durable medical equipment, or things of that nature. If this occurs a parent may be able to file an invdividual claim in addition to their child’s CP lawsuit.
