Unfortunately, there are times when a child’s disability originates or is a result of the negligence of others. Intellectual and developmental disabilities such as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Cerebral Palsy, Coma, Memory problems, and other developmental impairments or delay may have been a result of injuries that occurred at birth or as a result of mistakes made during pregnancy, labor, or delivery or as the result of a significant head injury during adolescence or teenage years. These disabilities often impair a child’s ability to function physically, socially, behaviorally, and cognitively with their environment.
If your infant or child suffers from an intellectual or developmental disability and you believe that it was caused by the negligence of a physician or the wrongdoing of another, contact our team for a consultation. Not only does our firm handle these cases, but also has a network of trial law firms throughout the state that work with us to bring a civil lawsuit against the responsible negligent parties.
Another unfortunate reality is that the divorce rate among parents with a special needs child is nearly twice that of couples in the general population. Divorce affects not only the two spouses that no longer want to be married, but also their children. And, for a child that has special needs, our firm routinely consults with divorce attorneys throughout Connecticut to ensure that the accommodations of a child with special needs are met and factored into the divorce and custody proceedings. If you are currently going through a divorce, or have completed your divorce and your child’s special needs interests are not being met, contact our firm so that we may assist you and your divorce attorney in providing consult on your child’s special needs.
