What You Need to Know About Hiring a Birth Injury Lawyer?

We are commonly asked the following questions:

  • When do I need to hire and attorney?
  • How do I know what makes a lawyer good?
  • Do I even have a case?

All of these questions are great and can be answered in a completely free consultation, we are always open and honest about our abilities and if we think we can help you achieve your desired outcome. If you do not have a legitimate case, we will tell you why. We will be happy to share with you our experience handling birth injury cases and what our successes have been. Our goal is to educate you on the laws in regard to your injuries and navigate the legal system on your behalf. Dealing with any kind of birth injury can be daunting, so we want you to focus on healing and recovering while we handle the legal aspects of your claim.

What Does Breach of Duty Mean?

In birth injury cases, breach of duty means that the medical professionals involved in your care (doctors, nurses, other medical staff) and/or hospital failed to act appropriately under their profession and expertise according to law resulting in unnecessary injuries or death. This failure to comply with their professional duty is known as a breach of duty.

How is Breach of Duty Determined?

This can be difficult, but in order to determine breach of duty, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s behavior was not in accordance with their duty of care. If any medical provider or medical facility failed to meet their professional obligation to a mother or child, then we must show evidence of this in order to prove your claim. While this can be difficult to do, it is not impossible. Our Miami Birth Injury Lawyers at Whittel & Melton will investigate your injuries and consult with our own team of medical professionals to figure out our best course of action.

The defendant’s (the hospital or medical professionals involved in your claim) will try and say that the plaintiff (you) failed to follow their specific orders, which is why the specific injury occurred. For example, if you developed gestational diabetes while pregnant, and were prescribed a specific medication and/or diet to protect yourself and the baby, the attorneys for the defendant will try and prove that you did not follow their instructions which in turn resulted in the birth injuries that followed. Our task is to prove this is not the case and that their failure is actually what caused your injuries.

How Do I Choose the Best Attorney for My Needs?

When selecting an injury lawyer to handle your case, you should do your research. You will want a lawyer that has experience in handling birth injury cases in your area. You will want a lawyer that is accessible to you and will be honest with you about what they can do for you. Your first step is to set up a consultation and ask your questions. A good attorney will take the time to answer your questions as well as ask their own. There are also some lawyers out there who will charge you a fee before any work on your case is done. This is simply not how we operate at Whittel & Melton. We care about your finances and we will never charge any fees or upfront payments to get started on your case. Your consultation with us is completely free and you are under no obligation to work with us if you do not like what you have to hear. If you do decide to hire us, we work on a contingency basis, which means you owe us nothing if we are unable to recover financial compensation for your injuries. We understand the financial stress that your current situation has placed you in and that you may be out of work or unable to work due to your injuries. All of this will be accounted for and we will do everything we can to see that you do recover a monetary award to help you get back on your feet. We will discuss our legal fees and how we get paid in your free consultation with us so that you fully understand what to expect.
