FAQ: What Should I Look For In A Cerebral Palsy Lawyer?
When you have a child with cerebral palsy, taking care of their needs can be extremely expensive. That makes an already trying situation all the more difficult. If you believe your child’s condition resulted from medical error, you could have grounds to file a lawsuit that would alleviate some of the financial strain. However, you can’t do it alone. You need a lawyer to assess your case and fight to make sure you receive a settlement that can help take care of your child for the rest of his or her life.
