The expensive treatment of cerebral palsy

Posted on December 12, 2014 10:38 am under Medical Malpractice

Cerebral palsy, or the impaired ability of the body to control muscle movement, is a chronic condition that would require treatment throughout one’s life to prevent the worsening of its symptoms. This is incredibly costly, amounting to approximately a million dollars in lifetime cost, based on data from 2003 evaluated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A person with cerebral palsy would require lifetime care by several professionals, including neurologists, surgeons, occupational and physical therapists, mental health specialists, developmental therapists, special education teachers, and social workers to ensure adequate support and care. Apart from these, medications and surgeries may also be needed to address complications arising from this condition.

Caring for and supporting your child with cerebral palsy can be a financially overwhelming challenge. If you think your child has developed cerebral palsy due to someone else’s negligence, filing for a legal claim might help you seek the financial restitution you truly need for the continued treatment of your child.
