Providing Extraordinary Care and Treatment for Extraordinary Children
We know that the thousands of children annually injured at birth have the capacity to grow and, in many cases, to overcome many of their disabilities. In order to unlock their full potential, babies and children who have suffered different types of birth injuries require specialized care, medical treatment and therapies, assistive devices, and educational opportunities. They may be victims of medical malpractice, but they do not have to live their lives as victims.
Our attorneys are dedicated to helping you and your child thrive. In some cases, all the hospital visits, medicines, physical therapy and other treatments can end up costing millions of dollars over your child’s lifetime. If you have suffered from medical malpractice, a birth injury lawyer may be able to ensure that you aren’t facing these treatment costs alone.
Wherever you are in the medical malpractice lawsuit process, there are resources available to you. These resources can help you make the most of the money you have. You can speak to your birth injury lawyer about these tools or access them below.
Life Care Plans
When your birth injury lawyer goes before a jury to claim damages in a medical malpractice case, a life care plan is a powerful tool that shows just how much compensation you deserve. This form can be used for all different types of birth injuries.
Your birth injury lawyer will gather medical records from birth until now and calculate the total expenses. That is used as a basis for future costs, as well, taking into account the living and medical expenses in your specific area. It will also include future care expected as the child grows, such as surgery and education.
The federal and state government also offer a wide array of services for you and your disabled child. These services can help you with getting your child a good education, health care and more. These services are essential to helping your child live a better life. Because government programs are notorious for being overly complex, your birth injury lawyer may be a good resource to get the assistance you need.
Special education has come a long way in the past century, and there are more options than ever for your child. There are even specialized art programs that utilize necessities like wheelchairs and make masterpieces from their use. In addition, new technology has made it easier than ever to live a more normal life. For instance, many different types of birth injuries limit speech capacities. A revolutionary app from AssistiveWare helps those who cannot speak still find their voices.
Finally, there are hundreds of online resources available for parents of children with birth defects. All different types of birth injuries are represented online, and you can find helpful tips or chat with parents whose children are facing the same difficulties. No matter what the issue, you can probably find a solution online from someone who’s experienced it before.
