Maryland Shoulder Dystocia Lawyers

The birth of a child is a life-changing event for the child’s parents, and a birth injury can be a life-changing event for the child. A birth injury can occur either before, during, or after delivery, and many birth injuries are preventable. Shoulder dystocia is an emergency which occurs during delivery that can lead to severe birth injuries. Shoulder dystocia results when the child’s shoulder becomes lodged behind the mother’s pelvic bone during birth. When shoulder dystocia is not handled correctly by attending physicians and nurses, it can lead to severe and permanent injury to the child. Victims of shoulder dystocia in Maryland and Washington D.C. can contact Maryland Medical Malpractice for assistance with their birth injury questions and concerns.


Some examples of surgical mistakes or malpractice include:

  • Operating on the wrong side of the body
  • Leaving surgical instruments inside the body after surgery
  • Performing an unneeded surgery related to misdiagnosis
  • Performing surgery on the wrong patient or wrong body part

Proving a case of surgical mistake or negligence in court can be a difficult task. Experts will need to go over many pages of medical records to build a solid case against the medical parties, doctors and surgeons associated with your care.

Dedicated Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Personal injury malpractice attorneys have the medical expertise needed to provide a compelling case and in turn, provide you with the monetary compensation you deserve to take care of any further medical problems or long-term medical expenses related to the negligence.

It would help if you never had to fight the battle of surgical mistakes or negligence alone. Call our medical malpractice personal injury lawyers today, and let us help you recover what is rightfully yours.

If you are in doubt of the validity of your medical malpractice claim due to the release forms signed before surgery, rest assured.

While every patient assumes there is some risk associated with surgery, surgical errors, often do not fall within these assumptions. Calling our medical malpractice personal injury lawyers is a quick, easy and free way to lay your fears to ease.

Surgical mistakes are far more common than many patients believe. Thousands of errors occur every year with some mistakes resulting in permanent damage to the body, brain damage, organ damage, coma, heart problems and even, death.

What is the next step?

While many surgical mistakes happen before or during the surgery, errors can also occur after surgery in the post-operative stage. Post-operative surgical mistakes can lead to infection, sepsis, a delay in healing and other potentially life-threatening events.

After a surgery, healing is supposed to begin. For a patient who has been a victim of a surgical mistake, this negligence prevents both physical and emotional healing in a timely manner.

Do not wait, call our medical malpractice personal injury lawyers today to discuss the details surrounding your medical malpractice case.

Doctors, nurses, and hospitals have a duty to provide healing care competently and appropriately. When this care is riddled with mistakes, you are the one who is left to pay the consequences for their negligence.

Give us a call; our help is immediate, friendly, and free of charge to you until we recover for you.
