Minnesota Birth Injury Lawyers and Resources

Sokolove Law has a wealth of information about Minnesota birth injury attorneys and other helpful resources for children with a birth injury and their families.

Financial Resources

Caring for a child with a birth injury can be financially challenging. Average lifetime care costs can be overwhelming when you consider:

  • Direct non-medical costs like home modifications, car modifications, and special education
  • Direct medical costs like doctors visits, prescription drugs, inpatient/outpatient hospital stays and therapies
  • Other costs, like the value of lost wages when your child cannot work as an adult, or is limited in the amount of work he or she can do

There are resources available in your state to help offset some of these costs:

Medicaid

Children with birth injuries typically have unique health care needs. Medicaid helps many special needs children get the care they require to stay healthy and live productively. Minnesota’s Medical Assistance program provides access to healthcare for low-income families and also assists with the costs of medical expenses.  For more information about Minnesota Medicaid and to find out if you qualify, call (800) 657-3659.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

A child with disabilities may be eligible for assistance under the SSI program. SSI is a cash assistance program which is funded and administered by the federal government. Its primary purpose is to provide a minimum level of income to people who are unable to work to support themselves.  Learn more by calling (800) 772-1213.
