Birth Injuries Help When You Need It Most

Enforcing the Rights of Parents and Children When an Injury Occurs at Birth

Preeminent AV-Rated malpractice lawyers who fight for birth injury victims and their families

Nothing is more devastating to parents than learning their newborn child has suffered a preventable life-changing injury, disability or death, and that their child will never experience certain joys that other children share, nor live normal lives.  For four decades, The Washington, D.C. and Maryland birth injury lawyers at The Malpractice Law Firm Jack H. Olender & Associates, PC have consistently held offending obstetricians, nurses and hospitals accountable when their negligence before, during or after delivery injures a child or mother.

40 years of experience in birth injury litigation

As the law firm that set the national standard in birth injury litigation by achieving the first multimillion-dollar award for a birth injury case in the United States — the first of more than 200 seven-figure and eight-figure verdicts and settlements we have obtained for our clients — there’s a reason we’re known as "The Malpractice Law Firm."

The attorneys at our family-oriented firm believe first and foremost in taking the time to know our clients and determining the effect the birth injury has imposed upon their families.  By understanding our clients’ personalities, needs and struggles, we are best able to tailor strategies that match the facts and circumstances of their individual cases.  The Olender law firm has the extra distinct advantage of employing a pediatric physician/lawyer and labor and delivery nurse/lawyer to help us prepare the case and point us in the right direction.  While every case is prepared for trial, because of our firm’s established reputation in the legal community, the Olender firm is often able to reach a full and fair settlement with those responsible, instead of proceeding all the way to trial. 

Investigating and holding medical practitioners responsible for their negligence

Our highly experienced birth injury attorneys use a team of distinguished and reliable medical experts and other specialists, including our own pediatrician attorney and labor and delivery nurse attorney and thoroughly examine every facet of each birth injury claim.  It is important to recognize that not every injury to a child is caused by medical malpractice, but when our investigation shows that the injury your loved one sustained resulted from negligence or wrongdoing, we put the power of our significant experience and knowledge to work to hold the responsible parties liable and obtain compensation for you.

Protecting client rights in the courts

We have successfully represented clients suffering many serious birth injuries, such as:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Developmental disorders and delays
  • Inadequate prenatal care and diagnosis
