What to Look for in a Birth Injury Lawyer

What to Look for in a Birth Injury Lawyer

Learning that your baby has been injured at birth can be devastating news. You might feel scared, angry, confused, or unsure of what to do. All of these emotions are normal. Contacting a birth injury attorney may be the next step in finding out what happened to your baby—and seeking justice for him or her. Below, we outline some important things to consider when looking for a birth injury attorney.

  1. Experience: When looking to hire a birth injury attorney, it is important that the attorney or law firm has the experience to take on your case. Birth injury cases are highly specific and very complex. You may want to look at the attorney’s track record, length of time in practice, and types of injuries handled in the firm’s birth injury case repertoire.
  1. Results: Take the time to review the attorney’s record of successful cases resolutions. While past successes for clients do not guarantee future results, it may be comforting for you to know if the attorney has achieved successful settlements and/or verdicts.
  1. Former Clients: It may be helpful for you to review any past client feedback listed on the attorney’s website or other online platforms. Listening to what former clients have to say about their experience with the attorney or firm may help you feel confident and reassured in your choice of birth injury attorney.
  1. Fee Model: Most birth injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. This meant that no fees are due unless the attorney wins your case. By using this model, the attorney or firm takes on all the risk in the case while you can focus on what is most important: your child.
  1. Empathy: It is extremely important that your attorney cares deeply for you and your situation, so that he or she will put in the effort it takes to prosecute your case.
