Neonatal Birth Injury Lawyer in Baltimore

What Are Neonatal Birth Injuries?

Neonatal birth injuries refer to any kind of medical condition or impairment that would impact an infant’s body structure or function. This happens when medical professionals fail to act appropriately when treating a pregnant mother and cause an adverse event that triggers birth injuries.

If you believe your child’s birth injuries were the result of a doctor or another medical professional’s negligent or wrongful actions, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. A Baltimore birth injury lawyer at LawMD can help you determine your legal options and work to recover the full, fair compensation you are owed.
