This birth injury NICA web site is intended to provide information to parents and other lawyers about the Florida Birth Related Neurological Injury Compensation Plan, sometimes referred to as the NICA Program. We are not the official NICA agency. We are a private law firm and we believe people whose lives may be impacted by NICA should have a better understanding about how the program works. We can also help you decide whether to seek the benefits of the NICA program, or instead, attempt to avoid the NICA program and bring a medical malpractice case to recover damages.
It costs you nothing to retain us for your NICA claim. If we represent you in a NICA case our attorney fees and expenses are paid by NICA when your child is accepted into the program. If your child is not accepted, you still owe us nothing for attorney’s fees or expenses. If your child and family is denied NICA benefits, you may be eligible to file a medical malpractice case and recover substantial damages from that type of claim. We can help you with that too.
If you are trying to determine if your child is eligible, please fill out our “Is My Child Covered?” form and we will give you free advice about your child’s eligibility.
If you are the parent of a birth-injured child looking for information about the NICA program we suggest you begin by reviewing the section on this site for “Frequently Asked Questions”.
