FAQ: What can I recover in my birth injury medical malpractice claim?
If your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical malpractice, you’ve likely considered the many reasons you need sizable compensation. You may be experiencing challenges in caring for your child and you realize that the problems will probably continue. What’s more, you have to face the sad reality of your own aging and eventual death, perhaps leaving you to wonder who will care for your child when you’re gone.
At PHP Law Firm in Wichita, Kansas, we understand the many fears and uncertainties you face. We have worked with many clients in similar situations and sincerely feel for you and your family. We work hard to help individuals, like you, recover all they can to secure the future of their child.
PHP attorney Bradley J. Prochaska says medical malpractice compensation can help pay for a Life Care Plan, ensuring your child is cared for properly during the course of their life. Compensation is often applied to:
• Past medical expenses
• Future medical expenses needed through infancy, adolescence and adulthood (medical procedures, medicine, therapy, equipment and other services, including care that will be needed if you can no longer care for your child)
• Noneconomic damages (pain, suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, humiliation, etc.)
According to Birth Injury Justice, the lifetime cost to care for a child with birth injuries is staggering. Prochaska concurs, estimating that the cost is often millions of dollars.
