You and your child did not deserve this. You trusted a doctor to monitor, deliver, and care for your baby, only to face a birth injury.
What you do deserve is recognition and compensation, and the Waldorf birth injury lawyers at Ben Crump Law, PLLC can help you pursue that. You can learn how at no cost with a free initial consultation.
We Fight for the Full Value of Your Charles County Case
All medical malpractice cases focus on obtaining monetary awards to help victims cope with the consequences of a doctor’s mistake. In your case, those awards could be for:
- Diagnosis – imaging tests and second opinions
- Treatment – surgery or medication
- Recovery – physical or occupational therapy
- Maintenance – long-term prescriptions or equipment
- Trau – pain and suffering and changed quality of life
While insurance companies and attorneys will attempt to settle for the lowest amount, our team investigates how the injury affected all areas of your life: physical health, mental health, finances, future, etc. Any economic losses related to the injury can be eligible for compensation.
You are also eligible for non-economic awards like pain and suffering, but those are limited by Maryland law (Md. Code, Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 3-2A-09). Nonetheless, you can still receive damages to cover the injury’s impact on the more personal aspects of your child’s life.
We do Not Shy Away From Tough Cases
Our team does not settle for average. We take on tough cases and pursue them to the end; after all, we are “trial lawyers for justice.”
If a doctor, hospital, or insurance company is trying to avoid paying what you deserve, we will fight for your damages – all the way to court if necessary.
Providing Support for Parents and Caregivers
Birth injuries don’t just affect the child. Mothers can be left injured, parents can be saddled with new expenses, and breadwinners can miss work while dealing with the aftermath. These struggles stem from the doctor’s negligence and qualify for additional compensation.
Our team can help you with:
- Past and future lost wages
- Home and car modifications for accessibility
- Scheduling appointments
- Long-term financial awards
- Contacting experts and finding care
Our birth injury lawyers see you and your struggle. We will work to obtain compensation to cover it by pursuing negligent Waldorf doctors.

We Take Over the Hard Work of Pursuing Your Case in Waldorf, Maryland
In addition to being committed to taking a case as far as necessary, we are committed to making that process as easy on you as possible. We do all the work for you.
In birth injury cases, that work often involves charting the events that led to the injury and connecting them together to illustrate how a doctor deviated from the standard of care. We accomplish that through:
- Medical records
- Test results
- Witness and staff interviews
- Injury photos and analysis
- Consultations with experts
- Event reconstruction
Medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove simply because doctors know more about their field than you, a judge, or a jury. They can claim they knew what they were doing, made the right choice, or could not avoid the outcome. That’s why we consult experts — to level the playing field.
We do All the Heavy Lifting
In investigating your Waldorf case, our birth injury attorneys work closely with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lab techs, and even actuaries and economists to explain what happened to you and your child and how it will affect you both.
On top of that testimony, we compile records, documentation, and witness statements. Our goal is to present evidence on multiple fronts to emphasize that your doctor owed you a standard of care, failed to uphold it, caused a birth injury, and now owes compensation.
Providing Clarity Along the Way
Since medical malpractice cases can be obfuscated by technical information, it’s natural to be worried about getting lost in the details. At Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we want you to feel secure in what we are doing and where your case is going, so we offer clarity on:
- Experience: We are open about our background and case results
- Terminology: We explain legal and medical jargon in terms you understand
- Value: We let you know what your case is worth
- Timeline: We keep track of how long we have to file a lawsuit
- Progress: We notify you of any changes or developments
- Negotiation: We keep you in the loop about what the other parties are saying
- Cost: We do not charge anything unless we receive your awards
If you have any questions, we are available 24/7 to answer them.

Your Lawyer Will Identify what Went Wrong and Who Was Responsible
You may not be sure what exactly caused your child’s injury, and that’s okay. You don’t have to come to us with all the information. We do the research for you.
Your child’s birth injury could have been caused by any of the following:
- Delivery errors
- Failure to perform a C-section
- Lack of sterilization
- Medication errors
- Lack of monitoring
- Failure to test or screen
- Taking an inadequate history
- Late diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose
While the term “birth injury” suggests a wound or broken bone, illnesses also qualify for malpractice cases. If a doctor fails to screen for certain conditions or does not consider how a treatment for a mother’s illness will affect the baby, they could be held liable.
In simple terms, a doctor is expected to provide adequate care and avoid harm. Any action or inaction that fails to meet that expectation is negligence.
Providing Help in Identifying Liable Parties
Birth injuries can be caused by more than one person’s decision, and liability can apply to more than one party. We investigate which of the following may have played a role in your child’s injury:
- Lab techs
- Care facilities
We will hold the appropriate parties responsible for their part in your child’s suffering.
