Maryland Birth Injury Lawyer

Serving Families Nationwide*

No family should have to experience the tragedy of a preventable birth injury. Unfortunately, this and other types of medical malpractice can occur in virtually any healthcare setting when trusted professionals provide substandard, negligent care.

The Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston is here to right these wrongs by holding at-fault healthcare professionals and facilities accountable, securing the compensation that can provide for a lifetime of losses, expenses, and care.

From our Annapolis office, we serve clients across Maryland and throughout the entire country.

Experienced Representation

With 30 years of trial experience, Michael Bereston leads our practice with professionalism, integrity, and a true passion for helping others. He is well-known in the legal community for his willingness to go the extra mile for his clients, and for his track record of success in this complex field.

These are extremely challenging cases, but no obstacle is too great in the pursuit of justice and a brighter future for the injured, disabled, and wronged.

Generally, the state of Maryland has a three-year statute of limitations to file claims of medical malpractice. In birth injury cases, filing claims on behalf of the minor child may be extended up to three years after the child reaches the age of majority.

This means that if you fail to file a claim within the required time period, you may lose your right to compensation. In birth injury cases, normally, a parent or guardian files a birth injury suit on behalf of their child and can recover compensation.

Maryland does allow exceptions to the three-year rule, most notable if malpractice is not discovered at the time it occurred, you have three years from the date of discovery, or the date it should have reasonably been discovered, not to exceed five years from the date of the malpractice, to file a claim.

    "A positive experience from the start. He found things other lawyers did not find. Those things were not all easy to find out. He delivered hard to hear facts about the case in as good a way as you could hope."

    - Ryan

    "Mr. Bereston represented me in my case. I found him to be very knowledgeable, professional and easy to talk to about any questions I had concerning my case. He would always promptly return my calls if I had any concerns or questions as the case went on."

    - Clyde G.

    "They truly love what they do and love each and every one of their clients like they are their own family."

    - Shauna G.

    "Michael was great to work with because he made a point to make me feel comfortable by explaining things in a way I could understand them."

    - Cathy
