Norman Birth Defect Information

Is Your Child Suffering from a Birth Defect?

If your child has a birth defect, a Norman birth defect attorney can help you analyze the type of birth defect and its potential cause. He or she can give you pertinent facts that will help you decide whether or not to pursue an action based upon your child's birth defect.

Liability for a Birth Defect

A birth defect is a congenital disorder or disease that develops during infancy while the child is still in the mother's womb. Because this is caused by many outside factors, defects are generally not from labor and delivery. A doctor or other hospital staff may be liable for not recognizing a potential birth defect and working to minimize the effects or notify the parents. This type of medical negligence may allow you to collect damages. A skilled birth defect attorney can help you determine your rights.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.

Common legal terms explained
