Birth Injury Attorney in Washington DC

Maryland Birth Injury Attorneys

There are many examples of poor medical care that can result in serious injury to a baby. If an obstetrician fails to recognize signs of fetal distress during labor, fails to take the appropriate steps when shoulder dystocia occurs during delivery, or uses forceps or a vacuum improperly during delivery, the results can be tragic. The child frequently suffers injury, and often the mother suffers neurological injury or even death during delivery.

Washington D.C. Negligent Physician Lawyer

When such injuries occur, the law requires that the negligent physician be held responsible for the damage that his or her poor medical care caused. At Schultz and Trombly PLLC, our attorneys work hard to obtain compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other costs resulting from negligence resulting in birth injuries. (For more information about Birth Injuries, please visit What You Need to Know About Birth Injuries.)

Other conditions that often result from poor medical care are cerebral palsy and Erbs palsy. The medical malpractice lawyers and staff of Schultz and Trombly, PLLC, come to the aid of people who have seen their children suffer from these and other conditions.
