Once your child has been properly diagnosed with cerebral palsy, there is no going back. Cerebral palsy is not curable. Coping with your child's condition and getting your child the help that he or she needs may be stressful and expensive, but it can also make a big difference in your child's life.

Medical care for your child will include a pediatrician and may also include an orthopedist and neurologist, depending on your child's symptoms. Your child's medical team may recommend drugs, surgeries, braces or other medical devices to help your child cope with the symptoms of cerebral palsy. Therapeutic care also plays a large part in the life a child with cerebral palsy. Therapies usually include physical therapy and may also include occupational therapy and speech therapy.

In order to get a child the help that he or she needs, parents often need two things. They need time to take their child to all of the appointments and they need money to pay for the lost time from work and for the appointments themselves.

If your child suffers from cerebral palsy because of the mistake of a New York or New Jersey doctor or hospital then the negligent doctor or hospital may be liable for the expenses of the appointments, for your lost time from work, and for other expenses related to your child's condition.
