What should I expect at my first meeting?

You will meet with a lawyer at your initial consultation. Before any medical issues and legal procedures are discussed, we need to have a general understanding of what occurred. Apart from background information (birth date, marital status, employment, medical history), we will need to know the following:

Chronology of what occurred
Who you saw and where
What was done
When was it done

At this point, we will explain the legal issues involved (standard of care, causation, damages and limitation period) and how we will proceed to investigate your case. Additionally, we will provide you with information dealing with legal fees and expenses.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
