Parents considering filing a NEC baby formula claim can request a free consultation with Levin, Rojas, Camassar & Reck, LLC. This consultation doesn’t obligate you to move forward or have the attorney you speak with by phone represent your case. However, it can provide answers to your claim questions, help protect your rights, and explore all your family’s legal options.
Below, we’ve outlined what to expect after contacting Levin, Rojas, Camassar & Reck, LLC for a free, no-obligation consultation. We’ve also created a list of tips designed to help you prepare for your initial NEC baby formula consult.
Next Steps After Requesting Your NEC Baby Formula Consultation
Whether you contact us by phone, email or request a consultation using the form on this website, what happens next? Here’s a step-by-step guide so parents know exactly what to expect:
- You should receive an email to schedule a phone call during regular weekday business hours to discuss your potential NEC baby formula claim. To better prepare for this call, we recommend writing down all details you can remember about your baby’s medical treatment. Organizing any documents and/or notes you already have on hand in chronological order is often particularly helpful.
- Then, you will receive some paperwork to e-sign for us to move forward with your case. Please promptly sign and return these documents so that Levin, Rojas, Camassar & Reck, LLC can begin working on your case. Once returned, your attorney can order full copies of your child’s medical records and begin working on your potential case. Because time is limited to file your claim, we strongly recommend signing and returning those items as quickly as possible.
- Our office will order your child’s medical records. The records will arrive to your home and should come on a CD. You will need to mail the records to our office as soon as they come in. It is important to promptly send our office the records and any passwords because it can take a significant time to review the medical records.
- We will mail you a welcome packet, long form questionnaire, and self-addressed stamped envelope. Please complete the questionnaire, place it in the envelope, and wait for the disks of records to arrive.
- The medical records will arrive to your house. You should receive all of the medical records within 30 days of speaking with our office. Once all of the disks have arrived, place them in the self-addressed stamped envelope along with the long form questionnaire, and drop the envelope off at the nearest post office box.
- Our firm will then review you and your child’s medical records. We have staff trained to analyze and report relevant details that assist in building your case.
- Expect follow-up calls, emails, texts, or items delivered via USPS mail as needed to provide our office with additional details. When our office contacts you, please respond in a timely manner with information required to effectively represent your case. Don’t worry – any information you share with our office will always remain completely confidential.
- Avoid talking about your potential NEC baby formula claim with insurance companies or anyone else besides your lawyer. Even privately discussing your potential NEC baby formula claim with friends and family can negatively impact your case.
Preparation Tips to Help Make Your Initial Consultation Go Smoothly
Here are some helpful tips to make you feel more prepared for your NEC baby formula consult:
- Make a list of all healthcare providers involved in your baby’s potential case. Include names and contact information for all nurses, doctors, and staffers who treated your baby. In addition, please list the names and locations of any clinics, hospitals, or doctor’s offices to contact for medical records.
- Write down a summary of events that could form the basis of your potential NEC baby formula claim. For example: When did you first notice your baby’s symptoms or complications prior to the NEC diagnosis? On what date(s) did your baby require surgery? What medical errors do you believe your child’s healthcare provider(s) may have made?
- Print or gather any correspondence you believe may support your case. This may include things like treatment notes, emails, mailed bills or statements from the hospital, provider, or insurance company. If you have relevant recordings of voicemails or discussions with your child’s provider(s), those may also prove helpful.
- Make a list of questions to ask your attorney you feel may help you decide how to move forward. Maybe you’re most concerned about how much experience your attorney has representing NEC baby formula cases. Or perhaps you want to know how long it may take to resolve your case. If there’s any specific reason you feel concerned or confident about your case, bring this up on your call.
