What Should People Look for in a Wichita, KS, Birth Injury Attorney?
JJS’s birth injury lawyers have decades of experience, delivering historic justice for people who have been harmed by catastrophic medical error for over 40 years. Our advocacy for victims begins with our digging deeply into the circumstances of each case we accept. We enlist a variety of resources, including our in-house medical experts and team of professional investigators.
- Investigating the evidence. Our network of professional investigators and medical experts will dig into medical records, laboratory evidence, and witness statements to demonstrate evidence of catastrophic injury. Then they will dig even deeper to uncover the full truth behind our clients’ injuries.
- Calculating the damages. Our team will then use this evidence to assess the full implications of the injury, far beyond just the medical and financial needs of those who have been injured.
Birth injury firms must also have the financial resources to last the fight when it comes to the pursuit of fair compensation for damages. Inexperienced and underfunded malpractice firms often encourage settlements that are unfairly low early on in the process. If a firm is not financially equipped to take on these major cases, then clients may lose their opportunity to achieve maximum financial recovery.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Birth Injury?
JJS helps victims of serious birth injuries in Wichita, KS, through their relentless pursuit of the maximum financial recovery possible, working for a secure financial future for our clients.
- Medical expenses. People who have been injured by malpractice often find themselves responsible for the costs of inpatient treatment, surgeries, emergency room visits, medication, medical devices, rehabilitative care, and more. By filing suit against negligent practitioners, JJS can help clients recover financial compensation for past, current, and even future expenses.
- Lost wage-earning capacity. Unfortunately, most victims of severe birth injuries will not be able to live independently. If they are able to work at all later in life, it often will be in a limited capacity, especially in cases of brain injury. Medical malpractice lawsuits can recover compensation for lost future wages of both injured children and parents.
- Non-economic damages. These damages can include an injured person’s pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress. JJS’s medical malpractice division works to prove the immense value of these kinds of non-economic damages, whether in front of a jury or at the settlement table.
