All Birth Injuries Are Devastating
Parents see their children go through many challenges, but few parents must live with the fact that their infant’s challenges were created by a doctor’s or nurse’s negligence in the delivery room. When babies and/or their mothers are injured or die as a result of birth injuries, families are left reaching for answers.
Our attorneys are not afraid of tough medical malpractice cases. Our Cleveland birth injury attorneys can handle any type of birth injury case, including cases involving:
- Lack of oxygen
- Internal bleeding
- Bone fractures
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Umbilical cord compression
- Inadequate fetal monitoring
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injury
- Forceps injury
- Cesarean section errors
- Medication errors
Poor Choices During And After Birth
Physicians make significant choices during delivery, including whether to perform a cesarean section (C-section) and how to respond to fetal distress, infections, umbilical cord compression and other difficulties. They must also make medical choices after a birth, especially when a child is born premature and faces heart, lung or circulation problems.
When physicians make the wrong choices, we are committed to help our clients hold them responsible. We will have other doctors review the actions your doctor took during and after the birth. Then, all facts are gathered, and everything is put together in a cohesive legal strategy designed to win your medical malpractice case.
