Our Kaiser genetic injury lawyers negotiated a multimillion-dollar confidential settlement on behalf of the parents of a disabled child who was born with severe congenital disabilities. The claim was based upon a failure to properly follow up on prenatal diagnostic testing. Under California law, in this circumstance, parents are permitted to bring a claim for the extraordinary costs of raising a disabled child, including the cost of special in-home care, equipment, therapy, special schooling, etc. The child was unable to walk or provide for her own needs. By utilizing a special needs trust in conjunction with structured annuities and a cash payment managed by a professional trustee, our team was able to assist the parents in maintaining their daughters right to receive public benefits while creating a sufficient stream of income to guarantee that she received optimal care throughout her lifetime.
