If your child was hurt or harmed during your labor or delivery, you may wonder whether there is anyone who can be held responsible for the harm that your child and your family have suffered. If the injury to your child was caused by the irresponsible actions of one or more of the medical professionals who cared for you and your child during labor and delivery, you may be able to pursue a birth injury lawsuit against them. The best way to know whether you have a claim for damages related to your child’s birth injury is to consult with a Mississippi Birth Injury Attorney. Birth injury attorneys know, among other things, how to look for specific types of information which could support a claim that that your child’s birth injury was caused by the negligent actions of one or more medical professionals.
When you are looking for an attorney to handle your birth injury case, it is important that you choose someone who you feel comfortable with and who has a good grasp of the laws that apply to your case. Attorneys also like to meet with potential clients before beginning a business relationship with them, so that they can assess what type of birth injury claim, if any, the potential client has. Because it is beneficial for attorneys and clients to get to know each other before formalizing their business relationship, attorneys often offer free initial consultations.
In order for you to get the most out of your initial consultation with your attorneys, it is important that you know what to expect, so that you can bring along any documents or other items that you may need. At an initial consultation for a birth injury lawsuit, the attorneys will talk to you about your pregnancy, as well as what happened during your labor and delivery. The attorneys will also want to know about your life after your child’s birth, including whether they have required any special day to day care or additional medical procedures to correct the birth injury or other injuries or illnesses. It is helpful to your prospective attorneys if you obtain copies of your prenatal care and hospital records in advance of the initial consultation and bring them with you. Also, try to obtain and bring along treatment records from any doctors and hospitals that have provided care to your child after they were born.
