Uncovering The Truth
What Should I Do if I Suspect Medical Negligence?
If you suspect your child’s injury may have been the result of medical negligence or malpractice, seek the help of a professional. It can sometimes be difficult for individuals to obtain and interpret their medical records, but our birth injury team is highly experienced in both the legal and medical fields and can help you get the materials you need to determine if you have a case.
What Happens When You Contact CPFL?
STEP 1 – Initial Free, No Obligation Consultation Our attorneys will answer any questions you may have, and gather some basic information about your potential case. We then advise you on whether or not to proceed with your case. Key factors in arriving at our recommendation at this stage include the seriousness of your child’s injuries, whether there is a reason to suspect malpractice was to blame, and the statute of limitations laws in your state.
STEP 2 – Use of Client Authorization to Gather Records Our medical records department sends out authorizations and follows up until we receive what we need to build a strong case.
STEP 3 – In-house Analysis of Merits of Case We conduct an in-house case evaluation, looking for evidence of violations of the standard of care, and evidence that links up your child’s injuries to any such violations. This involves putting many heads together, including our in-house board-certified physician. Once we have analysed your unique circumstances, we will determine if you have a case we would advise pursuing.
If we advise moving forward, you pay us nothing unless we win your case. We also keep our communications confidential and respect the privacy of you and your loved ones.
