How Will A Successful Case Impact My Child’s Care?
Over the last couple months, we have been using this space to answer important questions you may have about getting help after a preventable birth injury to your child. So far, this has focused on the process, but we share your primary concern: what benefit your child will actually receive from the process.
If a birth injury case is successful, there will be millions of dollars involved, which will be placed into a Special Needs Trust. This means that the money is available to you from that point forward, as long as it is being used to benefit your child. The needs of each child vary, so there is frequently a nurse or other professional experienced in your child’s condition available to advise you on how to best use the money to improve your child’s life. This can look like expert treatment, more therapy, top-of-the-line care facilities, or other resources to give your child the best care available to them.
Your child deserves the best life they can have. We know that you want to provide that for them, and we want to help you. If you believe that the hospital or doctor is responsible for your child’s birth injury, we urge you to partner with a legal team that is experienced in handling these cases and focused on doing what is right for your child.
