NO THANKS TO LEGAL AID, the parents of a severely disabled boy were not eligible for publicly funded advice

noun_Baby_479948I represented the parents of a baby who suffered a serious brain injury.

The hospital decided to withdraw life-sustaining medical treatment because they thought it was futile, meaning the baby would die. His parents objected to this decision.

NO THANKS TO LEGAL AID, the boy’s parents were not eligible for public funding and had to pay for legal advice. We challenged the decision and the hospital changed its mind, and the boy is still alive today.
