Just Want An Apology In Your Birth Injury Case?

Just want an apology in your birth injury case? People often reach out asking what they can do to get an apology in their birth injury case. Unfortunately, the civil justice system was not created to issue apologies. In fact, one of the main purposes of the civil justice system is to make parties whole when they have suffered damage at the hands of someone else.

In dealing with legal matters, damage refers to physical, emotional and financial harm suffered because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. To add clarity to the issue, understand that Maryland requires four elements to prove medical negligence, including birth injuries.


These elements that one needs to prove are duty, breach of that duty, causation and damages. In order to thoroughly analyze your matter, the use of medical experts is a must. Medical experts can show whether the treating physician fell below the standard of care. The standard that should be followed is the duty. Deviating from the standard of care is a breach of the duty. Causation is met when the deviation caused your damages (or harms).

Although you may not “be in it for the money,” it costs money, lots of money, to bring these types of cases If you are successful through settlement or trial, the judge will not order an apology. However, he or she will order a recovery to make you, the plaintiff, whole.
