Making the first phone call
On your first call, you will have the opportunity to speak with one of our nurse case managers. This conversation is not the start of an official birth injury lawsuit. Instead, it is the first step in the process of evaluating your birth injury claim to determine if your child's injury was possibly caused by medical negligence. One of our nurses will ask you about the medical care and treatment that may have led to your child’s birth injury. Once our nurse has the necessary information, a birth injury attorney will review the case.
