Birth Injury Attorneys Serving Families Throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C.

When a child comes into the world, a parent’s greatest hope is that their child will be safe and healthy. A birth injury can mar what would otherwise have been a joyous occasion for a family, causing great emotional and financial distress as parents struggle to deal with the unanticipated consequences of a medical provider’s negligent or careless behavior.

If your child has suffered a birth injury, you must act quickly to explore all your options. Seeking help from a healthcare professional is essential to finding out whether your child can recover — and seeking the assistance of a lawyer is crucial to discovering whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.
