There should never be a price put on a child’s live. There is, however, a price on doctor’s appointments, therapy sessions, specialists, tests, medications, and other medical treatment.

It is almost impossible to know or calculate the damages you might receive from a cerebral palsy statement without knowing the exact details of your case.

What are some Cerebral Palsy Damages?

In general, damages in cerebral palsy cases could be recovered for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation or therapy
  • Special education costs
  • Counseling
  • Medical supplies
  • Home care
  • Equipment or assistive technology
  • Pain and suffering

Specific damages vary by case.

What are Life Care Plans?

A life care plan is something your attorney can draft. They will work with health and economic specialists as well as doctors and the specifics of your case to come up with a document regarding your child and their cerebral palsy care. The plan will estimate the cost and types of care your child will require over the course of their lifetime, adjusting for inflation.

The amount of money detailed in the life care plan is a good indicator of what the settlement for your case should be.
