Most parents whose babies have suffered birth injuries have a compelling need to know why these injuries occurred. At first, the question of why may seem more important than financial factors. Families are devastated and want explanations more than anything.
Call us at 304-881-0652 and talk to an attorney for free to begin the process of getting those answers regarding apparent birth defects.
However, the grim reality of the costs of dealing with the effects of a birth injury over a lifetime soon becomes apparent. Cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy or shoulder dystocia will limit most children's development and capabilities. Early therapy is a critical aspect of ensuring the most favorable outcome possible.
Depending on the severity of the fetal trauma, the child may need help and accommodations such as these throughout childhood and possibly into adulthood:
- Extensive testing and evaluations
- Medical treatment
- Adaptive equipment
- Special education
- Personal assistance
It may not be possible to fully assess the projected extent of a child's disability for some time. Expert opinions from both medical and economic experts are essential to the construction of compelling arguments in support of fair compensation for the child and his or her family after a birth injury.
