Should I Call A Maryland Birth Injury Lawyer?

If your child has been injured at birth and you are thinking about calling a lawyer but are not quite sure, that is understandable. You may have never had to talk to a lawyer before. You may have heard things from friends, family, co-workers, and even doctors which put doubt in your mind about whether you should speak to a birth injury at all. For over 30 years, I have spoken to many families whose children have been injured at birth. Over those many years, there are some common things that these families have told me as to why they were reluctant to call in the first place.

What People Have Told Me They Heard About Birth Injury Lawsuits?

I've heard that it might be too late to pursue a birth injury lawsuit if my child is over 3 years old. Is that true?

Not at all. In fact, in the states of Maryland and DC, you have the opportunity to bring forward a case until your child reaches the age of 21. Our legal system recognizes that certain injuries may not manifest fully until later in life, so there's still ample time to seek justice for your child's situation.

I'm worried that the issues my child is facing will simply get  themselves over time. Is that a valid concern?

It's completely understandable to want the best for your child's well-being. However, it's important to know that in most cases, birth injuries unfortunately don't resolve on their own; instead, they often persist and can even worsen over time. Seeking professional guidance and exploring your legal options can be crucial in ensuring your child receives the care and support they need for the future.

I'm overwhelmed with guilt and fear that I'll be blamed for my child's birth injury. Can you reassure me?

Please know that it's natural to experience feelings of guilt and fear in such challenging circumstances. However, it's crucial to understand that the responsibility lies with the medical professionals involved in your child's care. You are not to blame. Our compassionate legal team is here to support you every step of the way, providing guidance and advocacy to help you navigate this difficult time with confidence and peace of mind.

I've heard stories of other parents whose cases were rejected by lawyers in the past. Does that mean my case isn't worth pursuing?

Past rejections do not mean that you don't have a case. Seeking multiple legal opinions is an important step to ensure that every possible avenue has been thoroughly investigated. The legal landscape and circumstances surrounding birth injury cases can vary significantly, which is why it's essential to explore your options fully with experienced legal professionals who understand the intricacies of birth injury law. We encourage you to reach out to us for a consultation to determine if pursuing your case is the right path for you and your family. We're here to listen, evaluate your case, and provide the dedicated support you deserve.
