In last week’s blog post, we discussed the cerebral palsy case that ended in a multi-million dollar award. This case is one example of why some parents opt to fight for compensation when a child is injured during birth. In this case, the parents received compensation for their son’s suffering and for his future medical care.
This is something that many people might not consider — the cost of future medical care. Even if you are able to obtain insurance for a child who suffered a birth injury, your out-of-pocket expenses are likely going to be pretty high. This can be financially devastating, especially if you can’t work because you are taking care of your child.
We know that you would give anything for your child to be able to live a normal life. While this isn’t possible, a successful claim for compensation can help you afford the thing that can help your child to have the best quality of life possible. This is why you might choose to fight for your child’s right to be compensated.
A birth injury lawsuit is one that is very intensive. It requires that you go through the medical records about what happened leading up to and during the time when the injury occurred. You have to go over the way the medical team responded to the injury. All of this has to be compared to what a reasonable doctor in the same situation would have done.
Even though all of this might seem intimidating, it doesn’t have to be. We are available to help you with your case from start to finish.
