Right now you are thankful to have health insurance. It provides your child, and your family, with financial help for some of the medical procedures and rehabilitation therapies that your child needs after suffering a brain injury at birth. But, you are still incurring costs.
Why Health Insurance May be Insufficient to Meet Your Child’s Needs
Despite having health insurance:
- The co-payments and deductibles are adding up, and you are learning that your health insurance may not cover all of the procedures and therapies that you think will be beneficial to your child.
- You may not always have health insurance. If there is a gap in your coverage, then you do not want your child to have to go without the medical procedures or therapies that could help him.
But health insurance is not the only way to do it. There is also another way to get the money that you need to help your child.
You Can Hold Accountable the Doctor or Hospital That Caused the Injury
Specifically, you have the right to file a birth injury lawsuit on behalf of your child. A birth injury case alleges that the hospital, doctor, or other medical professional’s negligence caused your child’s birth injury to occur. If you can successfully prove that negligence then you may be able to recover for past, current and future medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket costs, pain, suffering, and other damages.
