Maryland Birth Injury Attorney Services

Maryland Birth Injury Attorney

It is a tragic and unfortunate reality that many families need to find a birth injury lawyer Maryland residents can get counsel from after the birth of a child who has been injured during birth.

A “birth injury” is defined as any damage done to the tissues and organs of a child as the result of complications during childbirth. These birth injuries can also be the result of a poor decision made by a doctor or other health care provider during delivery. Some of these poor decisions include: failing to detect an umbilical cord wrapped around the baby’s neck, unreasonable delay in performing an emergency Caesarean section, and misdiagnosis of conditions during pregnancy. Often, injuries during birth cause life-long disabilities that can have profound impacts on the families who have to care for the child. These injuries can be physical and/or mental and can debilitate a young person to the point that they will need long-term care and sometimes, never be able to live independently.

Birth injury is a form of medical malpractice. Doctor negligence needs to be proved in order to make a claim. Doctors make tough judgment calls every day, and, unfortunately, a doctor does not hold liability for every bad outcome that occurs on his or her watch. This is one reason birth injury cases, like all medical malpractice cases, can be so difficult. These cases require proof that the doctor made a mistake that another doctor in the same situation would not have made. In most birth injury cases, the hospital where the injuries occurred will do anything they can to prove that the mistake that caused a birth injury is excusable.

If your child was injured during birth, talking to a reputable birth injury lawyer Maryland families can rely on, may be in your and your family’s best interest. An experienced personal injury lawyer can come up with a plan to protect your child’s rights.

It is not uncommon for a birth injury to result in a life-long disability for the child. These disabilities often mean increased medical expenses for rehabilitation, special care and special equipment for the child. Caring for a child with a disability can be mentally taxing for family members as well.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
