Birth Injury Compensation & Settlement
What Compensation Solutions Are There For My Baby´s Birth Injury?
When a baby has experienced harm, one of the first concerns for the family is, “how are we going to pay to care for our child?” It is a sad reality that insurance companies will try to avoid covering the costs of a lifelong birth injury. Physical therapy, doctor appointments, specialist machines and care costs are just some of the expenses that will be incurred. You will require the help of an attorney to analyze whether you are able to claim compensation for the suffering caused to your baby.

Ongoing Care for Your Child
A common question is, “how much compensation are we entitled to for my baby´s trauma?” The available compensation will depend on a variety of factors such as the scope of the harm and the lifelong impact it will have on your baby. For example, Erb´s palsy will secure less compensation than cerebral palsy as it is usually a less severe condition. We are experienced in calculating the expenses that will result from the damage and continue over your child´s lifespan. We can then fight to obtain the highest possible compensation for you and your family. The most frequent expenses include:
- Medical care
- Hospital visits
- Home health care
- Adaptive equipment
- Home renovations to make your house accessible for your child
We also claim compensation to cover advances in medical treatments and include lost wages to ensure your child can afford adequate care past their majority. Further, we take into account the distress caused to your baby and your family and provide for the possibility that you and your partner may die before your child reaches adulthood.
