Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit Settlements

Our Philadelphia Cerebral Palsy Attorneys Fight for Lifelong Compensation

The majority of cerebral palsy lawsuits settle prior to trial. Some settle during trial and others reach a jury verdict, but most will involve settlements. Healthcare professionals and facilities often choose to settle in order to avoid the considerable time and expense associated with a courtroom trial, if the evidence suggests that their chances of winning are relatively low.

When our Philadelphia cerebral palsy attorneys take on a case, our first approach will be to secure a settlement, as this is often beneficial to our client as well. A settlement will be much faster to secure than a verdict, as a trial could go on for months or even years, with appeals and delays. It is important to note, however, that we will only accept a settlement that we believe is truly in a client’s best interests.

To secure a fair settlement, we prepare our cerebral palsy lawsuits as though they are going to trial. We have found that the more convincing the evidence of malpractice, the greater the likelihood of a settlement prior to trial. Fully investigating the case and building evidence of negligence or wrongdoing will show the defendant (the doctor, facility, nurse, or other healthcare professional) that they cannot win in court, or at the very least that a trial would be an unnecessary expense.

Should I Accept a Settlement for My Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit?

The question of whether you should accept a settlement is personal. Every case is different, and the value of the settlement offer will determine whether it is sufficient to cover all of your child’s needs – now and into the future. As with every case we take on, we at Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. will talk to you about what happened, your child’s care, and whether the settlement will actually cover all expenses, injuries, and losses.

If a settlement is not the best option for you, we are prepared to move forward with a trial. Our Philadelphia cerebral palsy attorneys are here not to seek a profit or a quick settlement, but to ensure that justice is served.
