Fighting Back Against Medical Malpractice

With five decades of combined experience, our firm is experienced in navigating even the most complicated of birth injury claims. Injuries that happen during birth can have devastating consequences, from brain injuries to paralysis and, in the most extreme circumstances, death. Our team at the Law Office of Robert Castro, P.A. is ready to stand up for you and press for justice in the wake of such tragedy. We passionately pursue the responsible individuals so that they are held accountable for their actions.

Birth injuries can occur as a result of many different forms of medical malpractice, including:

  • Failure to order a cesarean section when necessary
  • Inappropriate treatment of maternal high blood pressure or gestational diabetes
  • Failure to respond quickly to signs of fetal distress
  • Excessive pulling on the delicate infant during birth
  • Traumatic use of forceps to remove infant from birth canal
  • Oxygen deprivation from cord restrictions during labor

Skilled Personal Injury Attorneys – (301) 804-2312

While accidents and emergencies happen in the delivery room, doctors still have the responsibility to react promptly and appropriately if something unexpected should occur. When doctors fail to do so, infants and mothers can seriously be injured. Birth injuries include brain damage from lack of oxygen, cerebral palsy, failure to thrive, and other serious conditions. In many cases, these birth injuries could have been prevented with proactive monitoring and attentive medical care.

Should your doctor fail to provide you with a safe level of medical care during your labor, or even during your prenatal care appointments, it is important to hold him or her accountable for the damage that has been caused by the negligence. As your Charles County personal injury lawyers, we build a solid case in order to adeptly confront the negligent parties.
