Birth Injuries: Legal Counsel Can Address Financial Concerns
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.
