Birth Injuries: Legal Counsel Can Address Financial Concerns

injury case examples

On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Lawyers in Texas for Birth Injuries on Wednesday, February 17, 2016.

Texas parents who have to cope with caring for a child who suffered birth injuries will naturally be anxious about their ability to provide adequate care for a condition that may exist for the remainder of the child’s life. Raising a child without birth injuries is expensive, but when a parent is faced with the life-long care of a child, it might become overwhelming. If the birth injury was caused by the negligence of doctors or other medical personnel, an experienced medical malpractice attorney might be able to secure the necessary financial assistance.

Each birth injury case is unique, and the available compensation will depend on the type of injury the child suffered. For example, a child suffering Erb’s palsy may recover over time, and the compensation may be less than what can be obtained for a child with cerebral palsy, a permanent condition that cannot be cured. The experienced attorneys at Hastings Law Firm Houston can assess the impact that the birth injury will have on the child and the rest of the family and pursue maximum compensation after calculating the total cost over the child’s lifetime.

Compensation may include all costs related to medical care — both at medical facilities and at home — adaptive equipment that the child may require, renovations to the home to accommodate the child’s physical limitations, and any other costs associated with the child’s condition, care and treatment. The attorneys at Hastings Law Firm The Woodlands will even include funds for possible future medical breakthroughs that may help the child. Also, to ensure care for the child after he or she has reached maturity, lost income will be included in the claim.

Texas parents will naturally also be concerned about the child’s care should one of them pass away while the child is still a minor. However, the documented claim will include such contingencies along with compensation for pain and suffering of both the child and the parents. Navigating a complicated medical malpractice claim is typically best handled by attorneys such as those at Hastings Law Firm who can hold accountable those responsible for the birth injuries.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Bug thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Ernie Wolford

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.


Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

Joy Love

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

Misty Peterson

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

Earica Robert

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

Devin Schumacher

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
