Who controls the settlement money after
the cerebral palsy lawsuit is settled?
When a cerebral palsy lawsuit settles, some of the settlement money goes to the parents (mostly for payment of past and future medical expenses) and the rest of the settlement is for the child. This money, especially the funds intended for future care, must be carefully managed so that it lasts the child’s entire life.

There are several ways, including using a structured settlement as a tool, to maximize the recovery for both the injured child and his/her parents.
