Medical Malpractice: Birth Injuries

Our Law Firm is Experienced in Birth Injury Malpractice Claims

When you or your family is forced to deal with the horrible reality of a birthing injury, it is critical to hire a lawyer who specializes in birth injury cases and is familiar with birthing complications. We have a proven record of successful verdicts and settlements in birth injury cases in Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. When newborns are injured because of the negligence of health care providers, they and their families will face numerous medical, physical, and emotional challenges. The newborn may require years or a lifetime of aftercare, therapy, and medical support that is a financial burden to their family. Parents must quickly learn how to raise a child with special needs. Sadly, many babies would have been born completely healthy and normal had these complications not occurred. Birth injuries effect approximately 7 out of every 1,000 newborns in the U.S. Our firm is dedicated to helping parents understand their child’s condition and guiding them through the process of securing the care, support and compensation they need and deserve.

Preventable Birth Injuries Demand Justice

We believe that the hospitals, doctors, nurses, or midwifes responsible for the birth injury should be held accountable. There is no excuse for preventable birth injuries. They neglected their responsibility to carefully and safely deliver your newborn baby without harm. An innocent child’s life has been affected because of a preventable birth injury. This cannot be tolerated.

We provide aggressive representation to victims of birth injury in order to protect your family’s rights.
