A birth defect attorney (sometimes confused with a birth injury attorney) is a lawyer who practices in the field of birth defect law. A birth defect is different from a birth injury, but the two are often confused. A birth defect attorney specializes in understanding birth defects and the impact they have on children and families. An experienced birth defect attorney will have a strong understanding of the complexities of birth defect law or wrongful birth law, and how to best help those affected.
At Sokolove Law, our birth defect attorneys have over three decades of experience representing families affected by birth defects.
We think it's important for you to understand what you should expect if you decide to take legal action on behalf of your child regarding a birth defect. Before you begin, a birth defect lawsuit may seem like a complex and overwhelming process. But it’s important to know that if we take your birth injury case, Sokolove Law and our co-counsel birth defect attorney will act as your advocates within the legal system to make the entire process as straightforward as possible for you and your family.
Making the first phone call
We make it easy to get started. When you call us a nurse case manager will be available to listen to your medical story and collect the necessary information. A birth defect attorney will then help to determine if we can take your case. Your first phone call is not an official start to a birth defect lawsuit. But it is the first step in evaluating your case to see if your child’s birth defect happened as the result of medical negligence.
With the help of a birth defect attorney, gaining monetary compensation from a birth injury lawsuit can not only help pay for your child’s medical care, it may also help to prevent a similar situation from happening to another child.
It costs you nothing to call or to have Sokolove Law take your case. We only get paid if you receive money from your case. Call today.
