Cerebral palsy is a condition in which the children who are typically around the age of one or two get a permanent damage of their muscular system. These vary a lot in their symptoms and the symptoms can be from the inability to control the muscles of the body and hence a difficulty in moving around like walking or running. They might also suffer from the inability to speak as even the tongue is a muscle. Moreover these kids are often affected by problems that are caused to the thinking and brain activity. The symptoms can be a lot different from individual to individual based on the extent of the problem. However most of the cases are caused by a simple medical negligence during the birth of the child. The babies that do not get proper oxygen during the child birth gets permanent damages in the nervous system which can worsen the problem.
Getting the right compensation for the cerebral palsy cases
A child and the family is eligible to be paid a compensation for the negligence of the hospitals and the doctors. Although the money cannot get a cure for this syndrome as it is permanent and medical science is yet to find a medicine to cure this. These cerebral palsy negligence claims can help the family to cater to the needs of the child. They need someone to be taking care of them constantly as the child will be unable to move or even walk. This will require a parent to be near the child full time.
As a result they may not be able to go for a job or work. This will result in the loss of a sizeable amount of income for them. So, it is only right that the wronged parents get a proper compensation from the hospital. Most hospitals prefer to settle such cerebral palsy negligence claims out of the court as it is beneficial for both the parties. A legal battle will put the reputation of the hospital at risk and hence they will accept for a hefty out of the court settlement. However in order to negotiate a good enough sum you will need the expertise and experience of a person who has knowledge in both medicine and law.
