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.

Tenacious Representatives for You and Your Family

The attorneys of Hastings Law Firm know that it can be a lifetime of struggle and expense to provide care for a child who has suffered a birth injury. We are dedicated to ensuring that the responsible medical professionals are held to account for their mistakes. All across Texas, our dedicated lawyers have secured millions of dollars on behalf of our clients through successful trials and negotiations.

We have a comfortable and welcoming environment and our staff is warm and friendly. Our aim is to understand the way your baby´s injury has impacted your lives. This ensures that we treat every case personal level. We will fight hard to ensure you and your family receives the justice you all deserve.

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
  • Testing
  • 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.

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.

Gus Morton

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.
