Prince George's County Maryland Birth Injury Lawyer Explains Suing A Hospital For A Birth Injury

Suing A Maryland Hospital For Your Baby Birth Injury Explains Prince George’s County Birth Injury Lawyer Marcus Boston

Suing a Maryland hospital for your baby birth injury can be a daunting task without a lawyer.

If you have read some of our past educational articles you know that sometimes we say that it might be fine for you to represent yourself.

For example, if you are in a “small” car collision and you know that you do not have time to make many hospital or medical treatment visits, it might be in your best interest to work the case on your own.

Suing a Maryland hospital for your baby birth injury is of a different nature. It is a big task. With that said, some clients wonder that when their case is a medical malpractice case should they do it pro se (without an attorney).

THE BASICS OF THE MARYLAND CHILD BIRTH INJURY PROCESS…

After parents file in the Health Care Alternative Dispute Resolution Office and get their transfer order into the appropriate circuit court, an important question can sometimes arise. The question is will I automatically have my case heard by a jury in a short period of time?

The short answer is no you will not. A lot of things are going to happen before your case is ultimately heard by a jury.

For example, once all of the parties to the case are served with the complaint and made aware that a law suit has been files, the defendants will have an opportunity to answer the allegations in the complaint. This answer should have all of the necessary and meritorious defenses named. On a side note, do not be shocked if the defense places all the blame for your baby’s birth injury on you as the parents.

For example, the defense may argue that genetics was the cause of your baby’s birth injury because the umbilical cord gas readings did not meet The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) guidelines.
