Financial Resources for a Child with Birth Injuries
The effects of injuries suffered at birth can be long-lasting or even permanent. Raising a child with permanent disabilities can be difficult financially and in several other ways. Filing a birth injury claim can help with the financial end while you deal with other aspects of your child’s care. Call a birth injury attorney to discuss recovery of damages.
Resources for Children with a Birth Injury
Children with birth injuries may require a lot of medical attention and physical therapy sessions. You may also have to worry about accommodations for your child’s disabilities at home and at school. But you are not without resources.
Medicaid may be available for families with low income. It offers benefits for your child’s medical and rehabilitative services, including:
- cost of medications;
- treatment programs; and
- other supplies.
Low income families may also qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) through the Social Security Administration (SSA) if you meet certain requirements. If you are granted SSI, your child will receive coverage for basic needs.
You might also consider attending local birth injury support groups. Birth injuries are not only painful for the sufferer; they can affect the entire family. Living with a child who needs close care and attention 24 hours a day is difficult both physically and emotionally.
