How can a Charlotte Cerebral Palsy Lawyer Help?

Families with children who have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy face many tough decisions. Deciding whether or not to take legal action against your child’s medical providers can be exhausting. In many cases, children with cerebral palsy need specialized equipment and care that can mount up to well over a million dollars throughout the child’s lifetime.

If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, you might be feeling overwhelmed with the amount of care your child needs and the financial toll it takes on your family. Many times, parents need to take their child to multiple doctor’s appointments throughout the week. They might also need to be with their child through hospital stays and surgeries that can require significant time off of work.

Considering a Lawsuit

When parents have other children at home, it can feel like they do not have time to think about anything except surviving the current day. The thought of finding an attorney and pursuing a lawsuit can seem extremely overwhelming.

Resonable expectations were set and the results far exceeded them. I was well informed, prepared and supported by Matt and his team. They provided comfort and confidence, as well as a great outcome. I can't possibly describe how grateful I truly am for what they have done for me. Matt was recommended to be by another trusted individual and I believe that was a blessing. Anthony

I can't say enough great things about Matthew Arnold and his team. I had a very complicated, high-conflict case which took a lot of time and effort on everyone's part, and I feel like my case was given the time and attention it required. Matt Arnold is a great attorney, and I would go as far as saying one of the best in Charlotte, if not the best. Bree is also amazing. Amber
