Measuring the severity of a traumatic brain injury

Brain injuries are insidious because the extent of the harm is so difficult to measure. An injury that might be fatal in one situation is relatively minor in another.

During the birthing process children are subject to extreme trauma. The human body is designed to absorb and manage this trauma. Unfortunately, mistakes happen.

A state-created task force calls on Maryland to create a 'fund' to provide lifetime medical care to children who suffer from birth-related neurological injuries. The state task force has made this call two times in the past. The fund would be modeled on similar ones started in Virginia and Florida. The purpose of the fund is to allow families to forego the need for litigation to care for their child. The goal is to make it easier for families to obtain compensation and to lower the cost of medical malpractice litigation.
