When a medical professional makes a mistake during a child's birth, the child may have to live with the consequences of this mistake for a lifetime. For the new parents of a child with a traumatic injury, a lifetime of care can be difficult and overwhelming to comprehend.
At the law firm of Ferris & Salter, P.C. in Ann Arbor, Michigan, we protect the rights and interests of injured people and their families. When you come to our offices with your legal concerns, we will work diligently to ensure that you have the resources necessary to care for a child living with a life-altering birth injury.
The financial ramifications of raising a child with a birth injury can be very difficult to understand during a child's early years. From early on, the medical bills are likely to be exorbitant - but other costs of living with a birth injury may only become apparent with time.
A child living with a birth injury such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy may require a wide range of special care and services early on, such as special education classes and speech therapy. In some cases, parents may have to make physical modifications to their home, so that the child can receive medical care in the home. An injured child may require constant attendant care and ongoing medical treatment.
In some cases, a serious birth injury may prevent an individual from ever being able to work or care for him or herself. When you come to our offices, we will make sure that you understand the full financial ramifications of your child's birth injury. We will work to ensure that your family is protected and prepared to handle the long-term consequences.
