When to Contact a Birth Injury Lawyer

Birth injuries can be devastating for families. The excitement of your new arrival can turn to worry as you care for your baby’s injuries and adjust to life raising a child with a birth injury. Sadly, many birth injuries can be prevented. If your child was injured due to medical negligence or mistakes made by our healthcare provider, an experienced birth injury lawyer can help you and your family hold the responsible party accountable.

How Can a Birth Injury Attorney Help?

Your lawyer can help you determine if you have a case. If they discover that you do, they can help you document evidence to support your claims. They can collect evidence, documents, witness and expert witness information, and other necessary steps to prepare for litigation. Meticulous preparation is necessary to ensure that your case is prepared for every possible issue. They may also propose a settlement amount to the opposition. If neither party can agree on a settlement amount, the case will often go to litigation.

If your case requires litigation, your lawyer will represent you in the case. To begin litigation, your attorney will file a complaint against the defendant in civil court. The defense must answer the complaint within an allotted amount of time, and the discovery stage will begin. During this time, the parties can exchange information so both sides are informed of the evidence, witnesses, and other information in the case.

Many times, the defendant will agree to a settlement during the discovery period. If they do not, your lawyer will fight for your case in court. Should this happen, the careful planning and preparation you and your attorney have done will be necessary. It is possible that the case can be settled at any time during the trial until the trial is resolved.
