It is important to find a compassionate Maryland birth injury attorney when facing such a tragic time in one’s life. No one is prepared for the emotional stress and anguish faced when a person’s child is born with an injury. Oftentimes, these birth injuries are caused by medical malpractice.
About Birth Injuries
Birth injuries are a very serious issue that needs to be investigated and researched by an attorney to help determine if a case exists for medical malpractice. Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy, can require extensive medical care and can get very expensive. Children born with cerebral palsy will live with the condition forever; it is a condition that is not progressive so it does not get worse or improve throughout the years. Birth injuries can be caused by a number of mistakes during delivery such as a doctor allowing the baby to be in the birth canal too long or the improper use of forceps.
It is important that you consult with an experienced attorney immediately to discuss whether or not you have a case to pursue due to statute of limitation laws. You may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering.
