The birth of a child is a transcendent experience. Unfortunately, due to the extreme vulnerability of a newborn’s brain, respiratory and nervous systems, medical malpractice during birth often produces irreversible impairments and disabilities. At The Law Office of Robert H. Kleinschmidt, P.C., in Scottsdale, our attorney works hard to help hold negligent medical professionals accountable and to help you recover the full and fair compensation to which your child is entitled.
Providing For Your Child’s Special Needs With A Life Care Plan
If your child has suffered a serious or catastrophic birth injury, you need more than a quick settlement that covers short-term medical bills and absolves the doctor, nurse or hospital of future obligations. You need a life care plan that will provide financial security for you and a lifetime of quality treatment for your child.
A life care plan is your personalized financial and medical strategy for coping with your child’s special needs and ensuring the physical and emotional health, as well as the economic stability, of your entire family. By consulting an attorney and obtaining such a plan, you can obtain a structured settlement that will provide for the future well-being of your child.
Experience With Disabilities
Scottsdale attorney Robert H. Kleinschmidt has almost 30 years of experience in malpractice litigation, and he knows firsthand the difficulties facing parents whose children have long-term disabilities such as:
Brain and spinal injuries — Injuries to the brain or spinal cord during birth, frequently caused by trauma attributable to medical malpractice, are often irreversible. The only available treatment may be to attempt to manage the symptoms through ongoing physical therapy and the use of adaptive technologies.
Seizures — Birth injuries may lead to long-term epilepsy, requiring close monitoring and maintenance doses of strong prescriptions.
Kernicterus — If a newborn suffers from severe jaundice and it is undiagnosed or improperly treated, toxins may accumulate in the brain and cause permanent damage.
Deafness and cortical blindness — Delivery room errors can lead to loss of vision or hearing, requiring costly investments in assistive technologies such as hearing aids, prescription glasses and service animals.
Mental retardation — Perhaps the most emotionally devastating birth injuries are those that lead to mental retardation. If your child suffered such an injury, you may need to support your child well into adulthood by providing specialized education and occupational therapy.
