Information about the Florida Birth-Related Neurological
Injury Compensation Plan (NICA)


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”.

We handle NICA and birth injury malpractice cases throughout Florida. While our firm started in Orlando and our main office is still there, in order to serve our statewide clients better we also maintain locations in several major cities to make it easier for us to handle cases statewide, and easier for you to consult with us for your case. In some geographic areas we may also associate with another local law firm to serve you better. Any such association would be at no additional attorney fees or expenses charged to you. By reading the information on this site you do not establish an attorney-client relationship with us. If you think you may have a valid case you should promptly retain us or another experienced medical malpractice firm to protect your rights.
