Pain and Suffering
Children undoubtedly suffer from a birth injury. The nature and extent of their pain and suffering will depend on:
- Their type of birth injury
- The severity of their birth injury
- The specific ways that the birth injury affects them
Specific forms of pain and suffering can include:
- Pain caused directly by a birth injury
- Pain caused by surgeries, rehabilitation, and other injury-related procedures
- Loss of a normal childhood
- Loss of financial independence (should the birth injury cause lifelong problems)
- General trauma from the injury and related symptoms
Parents, and the mother specifically, can be deeply affected by birth injury. The Journal of Caring Sciences explains that you may suffer trauma from:
- The difficult childbirth
- Clinical care that you must receive after a traumatic birth
- Other negative environmental experiences
Anxiety, fear, sorrow, and anger are four emotions that the journal observed in mothers following a birth injury. You may need medication and counseling for these emotions. Liable parties may be responsible for your suffering and for the cost of your treatment.
Your child’s birth injury could require expensive, and possibly long-term care. Depending on the nature of the injury, your child may need:
- Emergency surgery
- Intensive care
- Round-the-clock monitoring by a medical staff
- Ongoing supervision from medical professionals, even after they leave the hospital
- Lifelong rehabilitation
- Specialized medical equipment
Birth injury settlements should cover the cost of the child’s medical care. They may also cover medical costs for the mother, including:
- The cost of delivering the child
- The cost of any other medical services deemed to be negligent
- The cost of treating any injuries to the mother
Caring for an injured or disabled child can be extremely expensive. Ben Crump Law, PLLC will assign those costs to those responsible for the birth injury.
Other Types of Financial Harm
Your child’s birth injury may cause several other financial costs, possible including:
- Caregiver services
- The loss of your career if you must care for your child on a full-time basis
- The cost of feeding, clothing, and sheltering a dependent adult
- The cost of any other services directly related to your child’s birth injury
Our team will conduct a thorough investigation of your case. We will identify both current and future losses. These losses will be our baseline for settlement negotiations.
The financial target for your settlement will depend on the cost of your losses. Our firm is familiar with the legal system in Middletown. A birth injury lawyer from Ben Crump Law, PLLC will resolve your case – you just focus on yourself and your child.
