Special Service Costs for Injured Children

Birth Injury Lawyers Serving Families Throughout Upstate New York, Rochester and Syracuse

Most people are shocked to learn how much money is required to care for a child with a serious birth injury. The medical costs alone are more than most families can afford. However, there are additional expenses and financial losses associated with caring for an injured child.

If your family has suffered a birth injury, it is a good idea to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. An experienced birth injury attorney can help you determine the amount of compensation you will need to provide medical treatment and daily care for your child. At DeFrancisco & Falgiatano Personal Injury Lawyers, we will review your case and discuss the needs your child and family will have today and in the future.

Helping You Plan for Your Child's Needs

We work with medical experts, economists and life-care planners to determine the types of services and equipment that will be necessary throughout your child's life. Depending on the nature and severity of your child's injury, you may need compensation for:

  • Medical equipment, including wheelchairs, feeding tubes, tracheostomy tubes, medications, pain pumps, standing frames, ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs), walkers, adaptive highchairs, lifts, beds, bathtub chairs, roll-in showers, gurneys and car seats

  • Other supplies, including special food, vitamins, child and adult diapers, adaptive toys and educational materials

  • Home and vehicle modifications, including making them wheelchair accessible, building ramps, widening doorways, redesigning bathrooms and kitchens, and installing alarms and intercom systems, handrails, grab bars and wall corner guards

A complete life-care plan is an essential part of your child's medical treatment, education and daily care. Life-care plans create a guide for your child's future and demonstrate the extent of the care and services required. Juries and insurance companies will need to see a life-care plan to understand how much financial compensation your family needs. We will ensure that you work with trusted experts in this field.
