How can I determine the potential value of a birth injury case?
If you’re looking for a birth injury compensation calculator to give you an idea of what your case may be worth, I have bad news: these tools are completely useless. No computer algorithm can account for the variables involved in such a case.
We understand the desire to find out exactly how much your birth injury case may be worth should you choose to pursue a civil claim or lawsuit, but the hard truth is that—by nature—an online calculator simply cannot do such a thing. Any website that claims they can instantly give you an idea of what your case may be worth is lying, plain and simple.
No birth injury compensation calculator can account for the myriad of factors which make a significant impact on the value of your case, and every single birth injury case is unique.
What you can expect to recover from a Texas birth injury claim or lawsuit depends on several key elements, such as:
- The existence and extent of the medical professional’s negligence.
- Your ability to prove that this negligence amounts to the legal definition of medical malpractice.
- The extent of your child’s injuries and expected recovery time (including whether or not their injury will affect them throughout their life).
- The cost of your and your child’s medical bills (including the likelihood of future medical treatments, assistive devices, and special needs care).
- Any wages you lost as a result of missing work.
- Your child’s pain and suffering (which can be very subjective).
- The existence of insurance.
- The testimony of a life care planner (if it’s determined that your child will suffer developmental issues as a result of their birth injury).
- The defendant’s willingness to negotiate a settlement.
- Your state’s tort reform laws (e.g., caps on malpractice damages).
- And much, much, MUCH more.
If you’re even considering the idea of pursuing a birth injury malpractice claim, we know you have a lot of questions. Call us today at 1-877-405-4313 for a free consultation, and we’ll do our best to explain your options moving forward.
Experience is key in birth injury lawsuits.
As one of the most-experienced cerebral palsy birth injury law firms in the country, we have more first-hand experience with these types of cases than almost every law firm out there. Even with our 27+ years of success handling all types of birth injury claims, the fact of the matter is that we wouldn’t even be able to give you an accurate estimate as to the potential value of your case during your first phone call to us. Attempting to do so before we fully investigated the facts of your case would be inappropriate, and likely inaccurate.
When it comes to birth injury cases, we understand the importance of due diligence. We know what’s riding on this case, and our sole job is to work on your behalf to get you every penny your family deserves. The best thing you can do—if you’re considering a birth injury lawsuit—is to discuss your case directly with an attorney that you trust.
While some law firms may charge by the hour, this is not how we do things at Rasansky Law Firm. All consultations (by phone, email, or in person) are absolutely free, and you never pay us a single penny unless and until we win your case. If we fail to settle your claim or lose in court, you literally owe us nothing for our time and the work put into your case.
Because we work exclusively on contingency, we have to be selective when choosing whom we take on as clients. If we feel as though you have a strong case, we’ll tell you as much and explain the process moving forward. If we need more information before making a decision, we’ll tell you exactly what we need. If we feel as though we cannot help with your particular case, we’ll explain why, and even offer to refer you to another trusted law firm for a second opinion.
