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.
