The Case for Birth Injury Funds
White Paper Summary
During the past several years, there has been a renewed interest in the development of state birth-related neurological injury compensation programs, or birth injury funds. Birth injury claims, verdicts and damages within the tort system are often highly volatile, and the tort system’s delivery of benefits to the families of children with birth injuries is frequently slow and inefficient. The number of families facing the financial impact of a child with significant, permanent birth-related injuries with little or no financial support is challenging policymakers to assess whether a state-run birth injury fund provides a more equitable and efficient means to help them.
