Recovering compensation for your child’s birth injury will not reverse what happened to your child. It could, however, give your family the money it needs to pay for medical care, therapies, surgeries, special education, medical devices and other high-quality care that could change your child’s life for the better. It could also result in compensation for noneconomic damages, such as your child’s pain and suffering or lost quality of life due to a serious injury.
