Evaluating the Financial Impact of a Birth Injury
Most birth injuries involve the deprivation of oxygen to an infant, and parents and their children face a lifetime of medical expenses. Working with economists and life care planners, our attorney provides cost-data analyses involving cost projections over a child's lifetime. Future medical care, medical equipment, education needs, in-home care, and loss in quality of life must be taken into account. Our lawyer also explains what parents can do to establish a special needs trust to provide financial security for their child from any award or settlement they receive in their birth injury case.
