Maryland Birth Injury Attorneys

We know you have questions. We help find answers.

Whenever a child is born with a disability or dies, or a mother has a poor delivery recovery, the family is left wondering what went wrong, whether it could have been prevented and where they will go from here.

The Baltimore birth injury lawyers at Stecco & Ward, P.C. relentlessly pursue answers for families. If the evidence supports a case for medical malpractice, we fight for the financial assistance they require for recovery or for long-term care.

Our combined 20 years of experience defending birth injury cases serves clients well. Prior to obtaining her law degree, Roxanne Ward worked for a major malpractice insurer’s neurological impairment claims team for several years. Subsequently, Ms. Ward devoted a significant portion of her practice to defending birth injury cases. She regularly is sought to share her knowledge in this complex area by insurers, health care professionals and colleagues who value her guidance.

Meticulous, respected birth injury attorneys in Baltimore and Washington, DC

Roxanne Ward and colleague Carlos Stecco apply their knowledge in pursuit of negligence actions against obstetricians, nurses and hospitals to hold them accountable for injury-causing errors before, during or after delivery. We know the law, we know the players and, most importantly, we have a keen understanding of the medicine involved in these complex cases.

Injuries can be caused by everything from inadequate prenatal care to missed warning signs, delay in delivery or misuse of delivery tools. These injuries include:

  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Brain damage/injury
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Death
  • Developmental disorders
  • Group B strep and other maternal infections
  • C-section complications
  • Neurologic impairment
  • Placental abruption and placenta previa
  • Preeclampsia
  • Pregnancy-related injuries
  • Seizures
  • Shoulder dystocia (Erb’s palsy)
  • Uterine rupture

In many cases, our significant preparation and exceptional negotiation skills result in substantial monetary settlements from the responsible providers. Often, a settlement is facilitated by our cadre of credible medical experts who consult with us on cases and provide supporting evidence. But, in other cases, a trial is required to obtain full and fair compensation for injury victims. We have been to court countless times and are undaunted by the prospect of a trial.
