FAQ: Will a Lawsuit Always be Successful if a Baby is Harmed Through a Birth Injury?
Although most babies born in the United States are delivered without incident, 29 out of every 1,000 suffer some kind of birth injury or birth trauma. If your baby was harmed through a birth injury and you’re considering taking legal action, you may be wondering if the lawsuit will always be successful? According to attorney Bradley J. Prochaska of PHP Law Firm in Wichita, Kansas, “The short answer is no, but the good answer is that we usually have a pretty good success rate.”
Prochaska explained that the PHP Law Firm is successful in the majority of its birth injury cases because of two main reasons:
- The PHP Law Firm has a great deal of experience with birth injury lawsuits. This is very important because birth injury cases are highly complex. Additionally, winning a birth injury lawsuit can be very difficult because the health care providers have a lot on the line and often fight the cases vigorously. Sadly, there are times in which phony testimony and other falsehoods are used in order to fight a medical malpractice lawsuit.
- Our firm often invests up to three years of time and $100,000 to $200,000 into each case, never charging the client a cent unless we win compensation for them. The PHP Law Firm only takes on birth injury cases we are confident we can win, thoroughly reviewing medical records and other information prior to taking on a case.
