What Compensation Is Available in Houston Cerebral Palsy Lawsuits?

In Houston, cerebral palsy lawsuits aim to secure compensation for the various personal injuries and losses suffered due to medical negligence or other factors leading to the condition. 

The compensation available can encompass a wide range of costs and losses, including:

  • Medical Expenses and Rehabilitation Costs: This includes past, present, and future medical bills related to cerebral palsy treatment, including doctor visits, therapy sessions, medications, surgeries, and assistive devices. Cerebral palsy often requires extensive rehabilitation, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and other forms of specialized care. Compensation may cover these expenses.
  • Lost Earnings: If cerebral palsy prevents the individual from working or significantly reduces their ability to earn income in the future, compensation may account for lost wages or diminished earning capacity.
  • Pain, Suffering, and Loss of Enjoyment of Life: This includes physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish experienced as a result of cerebral palsy and its associated challenges. Cerebral palsy can impact one's ability to participate in activities they once enjoyed. Compensation may be awarded for the loss of quality of life and the inability to engage in hobbies, social activities, and other pursuits.
  • Home Modifications and Assistive Devices: Compensation may cover the costs of making necessary modifications to the home environment and acquiring assistive devices to improve the individual's quality of life and independence.
  • Caregiver Expenses: If family members or professional caregivers are required to provide assistance and support to the individual with cerebral palsy, compensation may be available to offset these expenses.

The specific amount of compensation awarded in a cerebral palsy lawsuit depends on various factors, including the evidence presented, and the quality of the argument made by your legal representative. 

An experienced Houston cerebral palsy attorney from Pierce Skrabanek can document the circumstances of your case and advocate for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my child's cerebral palsy was caused by medical negligence?

Signs of potential negligence may include delayed or improper response to fetal distress, failure to perform a timely cesarean section, or medication errors during labor and delivery.

How long do I have to file a cerebral palsy lawsuit?

The deadline for filing a cerebral palsy lawsuit varies by state. In Texas, the limitation for pursuing medical malpractice cases is generally two years from the date of the injury or the date the injury was discovered. Contact a lawyer to discuss your individual timeline, and whether there are any exceptions that apply in your case.

How long does a cerebral palsy lawsuit take?
