Question: Can you provide more detail on how long a birth injury case may take to resolve?


The duration of a birth injury case is influenced by various factors. These include the amount of evidence, the opposing party’s willingness to negotiate, and case complexity.

Our goal is to achieve a resolution that fully addresses your needs and rights, without unnecessary delay. However, we make sure to take all necessary steps to build the strongest case for you and your family.

Question: What types of compensation can be expected from a birth injury case, and how is this determined?
