    That is not acceptable. A document should be completed and you should have reviewed and approved all of its contents for accuracy before signing it. You should sign in the presence of the notary; and the notary should sign and seal the document in his/ her presence. This is not only an ethical issue for the attorney, but it is one for the notary as well. From the attorney's perspective, it really is not worth the "risk" to take such "shortcuts".

    I can only add that you should ask your attorney to help you evaluate your damages. Sit down with him or her and review the facts pertaining to liability as well as damages thoroughly. Any attorney representing you should be willing and eager to do that with you. Damages have to be considered in light of your pre-existing injury.

    It is as important, perhaps more, to find an attorney who has significant experience in the medical malpractice area of law as it would be to find an attorney who has previously sued one particular hospital. If you take that approach, you can call your local Bar Association or look on-line to see if the attorneys in your area list their practice areas. Remember that hiring an attorney is an important decision. Most attorneys who practice in this area will consult with you for no charge. So I...

    Being a mother, it is difficult (if not impossible) to imagine how devastating it must be to have a child with such extensive, life-long health and quality of life issues. I am so sorry for your circumstance. Being an attorney who has represented people who have suffered injuries due to medical negligence for more than 2 decades, I agree that it is both urgent and critical that you consult with an attorney who specializes or concentrates in the medical malpractice area of law as soon as...
