Transcript: What Is My Time Commitment, as a Parent, in My Birth Injury Lawsuit?
Hello, my name is Emily Thomas, and I’m a birth injury attorney with Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers. Parents often ask me “What is going to be my time commitment in pursuing a birth injury case for my child?” We always tell all our clients that we want you to focus on being a parent and caring for your family first and foremost. We will worry about the legal aspects of any case being pursued. However, there are a few instances in which parents will need to be involved.
First, you will have to give a deposition and answer some questions, verbally, in regards to the case. Second, you might have to answer some written questions in regards to the case. And lastly, you may need to bring your child to examinations by doctors who are serving as experts in the litigation. If the case does go to trial, your presence will be required in court.
These instances are really the only instances that parental involvement is necessary in the case other than phone calls and conversations with us regarding the status and the developments in the case.
