Birth trauma is a devastating event for any family. While not every adverse child birth outcome is due to physician or hospital negligence, when it does occur, it is a very difficult for the parents to accept and understand. Given that the life-time care needs of a profoundly injured come at an enormous cost, parents are faced with uncertain and scary thoughts of how to pay for care.
When a new born is injured due to negligence, the law requires the physician or hospital to pay the life-time of future cost of care needed as a result of the negligence. Such costs include medical care, nursing care, home care, medical equipment and devices, special therapy and education, and changes to the home to accommodate the child’s disability.
