Minnesota Medical Care and Life Health Care Plans
If your child was born with a birth injury, you may need to make a long-term plan to deal with your child's medical issues. When this is the case, you need to think far into the future and create a plan that will address your child's needs after you are gone.
Addressing your child's physical, emotional, medical and financial needs can be overwhelming for parents in Minnesota. The way forward is to create a comprehensive life care plan.
What is a life health care plan?
A comprehensive life care plan should address every important issue that could impact your child's life now and throughout their lifetime. Such issues include:
- Where your child will live in the future.
- What should be done in the event of a medical emergency involving your child.
- Contingency plan for potential medical complications involving your child.
- Who will be your child's legal guardian in the event of your death, if you expect your child to outlive you.
- How your child's medical care will be paid for during your lifetime and afterwards.
Don't underestimate the complexity of your child's medical condition now or in the future -- make sure you're aware of all the legal options available to you in Minnesota.
Understanding your options in Minnesota
In many cases, birth injuries occur because of mistakes made by medical professionals before, during or shortly after a child's birth. Legally, the individual medical professional or the medical institution they work for could be held accountable for their mistakes. Funding recovered in a birth injury lawsuit can fund your child's life care plan.
