If you’re looking for a lawyer to help you file a lawsuit over a birth injury caused by medical negligence, there are a few things you need to look for in your potential attorney.
One of the most important things you need to make sure of is that the attorney actually has experience — not only with medical negligence cases — but also with cases specifically involving an infant developing cerebral palsy due to a birth injury.
A cerebral palsy lawyer will understand what to look for when they consult with you to see if negligence actually was an issue. If they believe that it may have been, and they accept you as a client, you’ll have access to experts who can help verify what went wrong during the birthing process, and who can help make sure that anyone who is responsible for the damage the infant suffered is held accountable. There are plenty of lawyers out there who try medical malpractice cases, but cases involving infants and cerebral palsy (one of the most-common outcomes of brain damage at birth) do require specialized knowledge.
Qualifications are always of the utmost importance when you’re looking for a lawyer. You may also be wondering how you can possible afford a lawyer. Most CP attorneys work on what is called a contingency arrangement. Under this arrangement, the attorney will handle your case from beginning to end, do all the work required to build and have your case heard, but will not charge you a penny unless they actually win.
