Birth Injury



The moment your child is born should be a joyous event. A new life has begun and happiness and excitement abounds.

Joy turns into fear and anger when parents discover that their trusted doctor acted negligently or failed to act, resulting in a catastrophic and permanent brain injury to their newborn. At the Baltimore Law Offices of David B. Shapiro, we understand that birth injury claims are emotionally-charged. While you deal with the aftermath, we get to work on protecting your rights and maximizing your compensation.

If your newborn child suffered a serious brain injury that resulted in cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, brain injury, shoulder dystocia, or autism please contact us at (410) 576-9100 for aggressive representation and compassionate advocacy.

You want answers to the events that led up to your child’s birth injury and what could have been done to prevent it. You may start with research and while that will fill in some blanks, you need an experienced birth injury attorney to not only educate you, but also pursue compensation for immediate and lifetime needs.

Brain injuries can occur during pregnancy if an obstetrician fails to diagnose maternal diabetes, high blood pressure, or bleeding. During delivery injuries can occur due to rupture of the amniotic membrane or a depressed fetal heart rate. Inattentive neonatal care can have catastrophic consequences that could result in a cerebral palsy diagnosis.

We will help answer your questions. We will be at your side in holding the responsible medical professionals accountable. While no amount of money can properly address what happened, your child is entitled to justice and a quality life, regardless of the future challenges they may face
