Washington Birth Injury Attorneys
A Law Firm Where Wrongs Are Made Right
Few experiences are more traumatic than learning a child has a birth injury that may literally affect an entire lifetime. While some birth injuries are unavoidable, the sad truth is that many could have been avoided with the right medical care.
Parents of children with birth injuries face overwhelming decisions just to ensure their child receives the immediate medical treatment he or she needs. However, they may also be worried about a potential lifetime of expenses for their child. The attorneys and staff at Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler, L.L.P. have the skills and experience needed to achieve outstanding results for families dealing with birth injuries caused by negligent doctors, hospitals, and nurses.
Washington Birth Injury Litigation is a Complex Process
While birth injury litigation involves highly complex medical and legal issues, it can be helpful to understand a bit about the legal process so you know what to expect. The following are some key steps in the process:
- Preparation. Perhaps the most detailed and complex part of the process involves the research needed to develop irrefutable evidence in support of a case. Much of this research requires the support of skilled medical practitioners who know what to look for as they work with attorneys to obtain all of the pertinent medical records. The goal is to obtain a detailed prognosis that may extend over the lifetime of the child, and identify all witnesses who can testify in support of the case.
- Pre-trial dispute resolution. Anyone making a claim against a hospital faces an intimidating pre-trial dispute resolution process required by Washington law. Families should be well-prepared by experienced medical malpractice attorneys who have the skill to negotiate a just result.
- Courtroom litigation. When settlement cannot be negotiated, the case is heard in court before a jury. While lawsuits can be stressful on malpractice victims and their families, our attorneys take the time to thoroughly prepare our clients so they know what to expect throughout the courtroom process.
The attorneys at Rush, Hannula, Harkins & Kyler, L.L.P. have the resources and the expertise to guide you through the stress of the complex legal process and prepare a case that helps ensure you obtain the results you need.
