The Lifelong Care Required for Birth Injuries Is Costly
Birth injury lawsuits are some of the most heartbreaking medical malpractice lawsuits because the victims are so young and innocent. Often, they face a life a lifetime of struggle with serious disabilities, and their parents struggle as well — knowing that their children have been robbed of a carefree childhood, that they will continually face challenges and struggle to do what comes easily to others.
No amount of money can ever replace health. However, money is what the American legal system offers families that are seeking justice — and it is often much-needed to care for victims of birth injury. Children and their families need significant resources to pay existing medical bills and to receive ongoing physical therapy, multiple surgeries and medical treatments. They also need resources for special accommodations, like homes that are wheelchair accessible and vans with wheelchair lifts. As time goes on, resources often must go to hiring continuing caretakers as parents need additional help around the home so they can continue working to support the household. The long-term costs of a birth injury can be astounding, but many parents do not realize this until they talk with us. It is only when we begin to tally the true costs of care that they realize just how necessary legal action is. Through filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, families gain the resources necessary to help their children move forward with their lives.
