The Effects Of A Birth Injury As Your Child Ages

At the Lancione Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping the families of birth injury victims get the care and resources they need by bringing successful medical malpractice claims in Ohio courts and holding those medical professionals responsible for the birth injuries they cause. Our goal is to recover all costs related to the injury, from pain and suffering to loss of future earning potential because of full-time care.

These costs vary widely and can take many current and future services and accommodations into account:

  • Ongoing medical care: Children with birth injuries require a lifetime of office visits, surgeries and medications among various other things.
  • Ongoing therapy: Depending on their needs, children with birth injuries need access to a broad spectrum of therapists. These include physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, vocational therapists and psychologists just to name a few.
  • Support staff: As children grow, problems moving through daily life unaided become more pronounced. Many children need support staff, such as personal care attendants, to get the care they need beyond what their families can provide as well as to share some of the caretaking responsibilities.
  • Adaptive equipment: Equipment can be necessary, and it changes as children grow. Sometimes children who are fine with little adaptive equipment need more as they become larger. They may need motorized wheelchairs, braces and artificial limbs. They may also need lifts, wheelchair accessible vans and adaptive equipment for driving as they get older.
  • Housing accommodations: Housing typically does not accommodate wheelchairs. When a child with a birth injury is brought home, parents often have to remodel and some of these costs can be monumental. They make doors and hallways wide enough for a wheelchair. They also make special accommodations in bathrooms and kitchens for easily caring for a child in any room of the house.

These accommodations can cost a great deal over the lifetime of a child, especially because they often wear out with time. Families find that they need multiple wheelchairs or that their children need more extensive therapy and care as they age.

We establish a life care plan and associated lifetime costs by talking with life care planners and other experts, analyzing continuing costs and taking action in court.
