Bringing a child into the world is a monumental event that requires astute medical assistance.

The skilled Baltimore birth injury lawyers at Cohen & Dwin stand up for innocent children who were harmed as a result of a bad decision. When you contact Cohen & Dwin, you can find out exactly how malpractice laws can help your family.
Birth Injury Types
News of a birth injury is a frightening experience for new parents and family members. After a complication during labor or delivery, the medical team may use phrases like “unavoidable,” “unpredictable,” or “despite our best efforts.” But if you cannot accept that your child's injury was unpreventable and you feel information is being withheld, it is best to talk to a qualified birth injury lawyer in Baltimore.
The problem is that many parents are not armed with the proper knowledge to distinguish between a conceivable risk and a physician error. And many expectant parents have no idea that a mistake during birth can lead to conditions like cerebral palsy (motor skill problems), Erb's palsy (arm paralysis), brachial plexus (arm nerve) injuries, and forceps delivery injuries.
