Read on to learn what characteristics a good birth injury attorney should have and how you can identify a reliable professional for your case.

What You Should Look for in a Birth Injury Lawyer

If you or your child has suffered a birth injury, it is essential to find a lawyer who will fight for your rights and ensure that your family receives the compensation you deserve. Look for the following when choosing a birth injury lawyer:

  • Legal Qualifications and Experience

A birth injury lawyer should have experience litigating cases involving birth injuries and a thorough understanding of the medical issues at play. In addition, the lawyer should be familiar with the laws governing medical malpractice claims in your state.

Fieger Law attorneys have the legal qualifications and experience to help you win your case. Our legal team has represented clients in hundreds of trials and includes award-winning trial attorneys, former DOJ prosecutors, and legal scholars.

  • Empathy

A birth injury is often a difficult and heartbreaking experience. Find a compassionate, understanding lawyer who makes you feel comfortable discussing the details of your case.

An empathetic attorney sees beyond the simple facts of the case and understands the emotional toll that the birth injury has taken on you.

In addition, an empathetic attorney will be more likely to fight you. At Fieger Law, we practice compassion towards our clients and understand how important it is for you to receive the compensation you deserve.

  • Settlement Calculation

When a child suffers a birth injury that leads to a lifetime of disablement, the child and their family may face tremendous economic hardships.

Look for a personal injury attorney who can help calculate the total compensation that your family may be owed. This figure should account for the cost of medical care, lost earnings, home or vehicle modifications, and other damages.

An experienced attorney from Fieger Law can help you calculate your potential damages and win a maximum settlement. Our previous client awards include a $144.5 million birth injury verdict, the largest in the nation.

How Do You Find the Right Birth Injury Lawyer?

Finding the right attorney to represent your family in this trying time is crucial to the outcome of your case. Use the following methods to find a few law firms to schedule consultations with to make your final decision.

  • Web Searches

The internet is an excellent place to start your search. By searching the location and type of attorney you’re looking for with a search engine like Google, you can find a list of top-ranking options. Read through each attorney’s profile to learn more about their experience and what types of law they practice.

  • Recommendations From Family and Friends

Recommendations from people you trust can also help you build a list of potential birth injury attorneys to research. A friend or relative can give you personal stories about how the lawyer handled their case and let you know why they recommend the law firm or lawyer.

  • Other Legal Professionals

One of the best ways to find an attorney specializing in birth injury is to ask other lawyers for recommendations. If you’ve used a lawyer before for something besides a birth injury, they may be able to refer you to another firm specializing in personal injury that has a good reputation in the legal field.
