The Medical Malpractice Claims Process
Our Cecil County birth injury lawyer will assist you through every step of the claims process from an initial consultation to filing the claim and negotiating with the insurance company. They will also investigate your case and gather evidence such as medical records and witness statements in order to prove that medical malpractice has occurred. Healthcare professionals owe a duty of care to their patients, and a failure to uphold this standard constitutes medical malpractice.
Our birth injury lawyer will prove that they are liable for the injuries that you or your child have sustained. If a healthcare professional failed to detect or properly diagnose a condition in you or your child, failed to address complications that arose during labor, failed to perform a necessary C-section, negligently or recklessly used forceps or other equipment, negligently or recklessly administered medication, or provided some other form of negligent or reckless care during labor or deliver, they can be found liable for your injuries.
