Portland Birth Injury Lawyer Shares Important Information: How Much Does a Cerebral Palsy Lawyer Cost in Oregon?
Cerebral palsy, or CP, is a devastating diagnosis for a family to receive. The CDC defines cerebral palsy as “a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture.” This is a permanent condition that cannot be reversed but only managed. Not only is this a devastating diagnosis, but it can also be a costly diagnosis. It is estimated that the average lifetime costs of cerebral palsy will be $1.3 million mores than other children. This is a staggering victim which can leave families wondering how they can afford to pay these high medical bills. Families may begin to wonder how they can recover compensation for these injuries, especially if they are caused by the negligence of a medical provider. This leads many families to also ask how much does a cerebral palsy lawyer cost in Oregon and what may they recover in an action.
This is a logical question is a healthcare provider’s negligence has caused this type of catastrophic birth injury. Cerebral palsy is commonly caused due to a hypoxic (oxygen deprivation) or anoxic (complete lack of oxygen) condition during the labor and delivery process. Typically this is due to the negligence of a doctor (primary care, familiar practitioner, or OB-GYN), labor and delivery nurse, technician, or other health care provider. However, no healthcare provider will admit to these facts without a lawyer pressing them for the victim’s family.
How Much Does a Cerebral Palsy Lawyer Cost in Oregon?
The answer might surprise most families who have had their lives flipped upside down due to this catastrophic type of Oregon medical malpractice:
Indeed, a Portland birth injury lawyer like ours at Kuhlman Law accepts cases on a contingency fee agreement. This type of agreement between a client and a lawyer means that a client does not need to pay any money upfront to the lawyer. Rather, the client agrees to only pay a percentage of what the lawyer recovers for the client in a settlement or court award. As a result, the risk fo the case is all on the birth injury lawyer who needs to pay for court costs, medical records, experts, and other expenses in the litigation. If there is no recovery, the lawyer loses that money.
This is a very common type of fee arrangement because a client is able to pay no money upfront and have no financial risk for their case. This means that the victim will only pay once there is an affirmative recovery and, in the event something went wrong with the case, there is no loss to the client. Rather, the lawyer is the one who suffers the loss.
