FAQ

Get answers to commonly asked questions about our legal services and learn how we may assist you with your case.

  • What Causes Birth Injuries?

    These injuries occur due to factors such as medical negligence, improper use of delivery tools, delayed or improper medical intervention, oxygen deprivation, and infections during pregnancy. Keep in mind that the mother, child, or even both could be victims of birth injuries.  

  • When Can I Sue for a Birth Injury?

    You may have grounds to file a birth injury lawsuit if you or a loved one got injured due to medical negligence or any of the factors we’ve listed above. The statute of limitations in Washington, DC, typically allows you to sue within three years of the injury or when it was reasonably discovered. However, the sooner you seek legal counsel, the better your chances of being able to hold the other party accountable. 

  • Why Should I Hire a Birth Injury Lawyer?

    A skilled and well-equipped birth injury lawyer can help build a strong case on your behalf. If that’s not convincing enough, remember that the defense will have a legal team representing them, given the seriousness of such cases. Without a lawyer, your case might not even make it to the negotiation table, let alone in court as a lawsuit. 

  • What Should I Look for in a Birth Injury Lawyer?

    You need a lawyer with experience handling similar cases, a track record of success, and powerful legal resources to fight for your rights. An attorney with powerful legal resources, such as one from Morgan and Morgan, America’s largest injury firm, won’t be afraid to go to court if the other party refuses to settle.

  • How Soon Should I Hire a Birth Injury Lawyer?

    The sooner, the better. Even if you believe your case will settle, it is always good to have some legroom to file a lawsuit if necessary. If you take too long to hire an attorney, they won’t have enough time to strengthen your case, which could mean settling for less than you’re entitled to. 

  • Can I Negotiate With an Insurance Company Without a Lawyer?

    Negotiating with insurance companies with legal counsel is not advisable. These companies only care about making profits, so they will likely offer lower settlements than what you truly deserve or even trick you into waiving your right to pursue compensation in court. 

  • America’s Largest Injury Firm Is On Your Side

    Don’t let the pain of a birth injury make you surrender your right to compensation. When you let America’s largest injury firm handle your case, you can rest easy knowing that you have a powerful, aggressive, competent, and experienced legal team in your corner to hold any defendant, big or small, accountable.
