NICA is a birth injury program created by the Florida legislature in 1988 and it is still effective today.
To be covered by the NICA plan each of the requirements must be met.
NICA will cover various expenses for an individual and family.
The NICA program was not created to provide benefits to families with injured children.
The point of NICA is that if the injuries fit the definitions, doctors and nurses are immune from suit.
NICA only covers what is “medically necessary,” so families sometimes have disputes with NICA.
If you do file a NICA claim and recover any NICA benefits, you may not bring a medical malpractice claim
The NICA promise of a no-fault program is often just an illusion.
Because the NICA benefits are limited, some avoid NICA and successfully pursue a medical malpractice claim.
If you decide to file a NICA claim for benefits it is best to retain an attorney to do this for you.
The statute of limitations for filing your application for NICA is five years from the baby’s date of birth.
