Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Maryland Birth Injury AttorneyMost people cannot fathom their new baby being less than perfect when they are born but it is a horrible reality that many new parents require the help of the personal injury lawyers Washington DC families can rely on in difficult times like yours.

Most parents-to-be do all sorts of things prior to a baby’s birth to help ensure its healthy and safe arrival to the world. People try to become as healthy as they can be in anticipation of having a little person who will need both physical and emotional care and guidance. Parents to be do many different things including but not limited to, changing their diets, starting to exercise or exercise more, they take vitamins, they get rid of anything remotely toxic from their home environment, they baby proof their homes well in advance of the little one being born let alone able to walk. People take classes, go to therapy, and when possible, take time off of work when the baby arrives.

The birth of one’s child should be a joyous (albeit often painful and messy) occasion. Yet some people’s experience quickly turns from Hollywood romance to a horror story when their baby is injured during birth.

When the organs and tissues of a child are damaged because of complications during birth, it is often referred to as a “birth injury”. This can be caused because of negligence of a doctor or other healthcare provider during the deliver. Common causes of birth injuries because of neglect include but are not limited to:
– Unreasonable delay in performing a C-Section when the mom or baby are
showing signs of distress
– Failing to detect a baby’s neck being wrapped by the umbilical cord
– Misdiagnosis of conditions prior to birth
– Failure to perform prenatal tests
– Lack of oxygen to the fetus during birth

The initial aftershock of having your baby injured at birth often does not prepare the parents, siblings, grandparents and other relatives and good friends for the road that lies ahead. Birth injuries can cause lifelong physical and mental disabilities.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
