How do I choose the right lawyer for my birth injury case?

When birth injury from medical malpractice is suspected, parents may be overwhelmed by the pure volume of information necessary to make lifestyle adjustments for their child. Most families tend to tackle more immediate and accessible subjects first, such as education, therapy, or home modification. Regrettably, many of these families end their research here—of the thousands of cerebral palsy cases diagnosed this year alone, few of the affected families will reach out for legal help. Unfortunately, this is partly due to the fact that simply finding the right birth injury attorney is often a highly complicated process.

As we all know, there are countless attorneys and law firms that advertise birth injury services. In fact, only a few of these firms and lawyers actually handle birth injury cases (and an even smaller handful handle birth injury cases exclusively)—most of these law firms and attorneys simply attract clients and refer their cases to other legal professionals that specialize in birth injury. Needless to say, it’s no simple process identifying and choosing a qualified birth injury attorney. So how are you expected to find the right one?

As an attorney with nearly 30 years of experience specific to birth injury litigation, I encourage the families of medical malpractice victims to thoroughly research birth injury attorneys and firms before reaching a decision. Because birth injury cases are so individualized and complex, it is crucial for your chosen attorney to have specific medical and legal knowledge, to prioritize close and communicative client relationships, to have extensive experience, and to exclusively and personally handle cases specific to birth injury. Not only will you want the best possible financial and medical outcome for your child, but you’ll want to ensure the litigation process is pleasant—as you’ll find, your birth injury lawyer does more than provide legal information. He or she will become someone you turn to for advice, resources, guidance, education, and support.
