Claims for compensation for a birth injury can’t be delayed

On Behalf of | Mar 24, 2017 | Birth Injuries

Birth injuries are harrowing for the parents who have to deal with the knowledge that their perfect baby was harmed by a doctor. These parents might choose to seek compensation for the birth injury in an effort to get the doctor to cover the damages the family has to deal with.

There are many costs associated with raising a child who has special needs. These can range from the cost of initial medical care up to the cost of caring for the child through adulthood. All of these can be included in a claim for compensation based on the birth injury.

We understand that you might have some questions about what the overall cost might be. It is imperative that you don’t underestimate this because once you receive compensation, it is unlikely that you are going to be able to get more compensation.

Your family’s dynamics might change when you have a child who suffered a birth injury. One parent might have to stay home to care for the child. Unlike parents who are able to send their child to daycare, you might not have this option unless you find a daycare that has the ability to care for a child with special needs.

We know that this is a trying time for you. We are here to help you work on overcoming the financial obstacles you are facing by getting your claim for compensation moving forward. Don’t waste time right now. Your claim has strict time limits, so you can’t put off filing your claim. Waiting too long can prevent you from being able to get the compensation you need to help your child.
