There are some financial support options for families who have a child with a disability caused by a birth injury. The government understands that there are events beyond our control and they have put a few different programs into place to help families who have a loved one with special needs. One plan is the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, which helps families to provide the proper nutrition to the child with a birth injury.
Having a child with special needs can be incredibly expensive when you look at all of the doctor’s visits, hospital visits, rehabilitation costs, surgeries and any other medical needs. A Life Care Plan can be drafted up so if you go to trial, the responsible party will need to pay for the expenses laid out in the plan.
Depending on what birth injury your child sustained, there are also programs and applications that families can fill out for financial need.
