Birth Injury And Birth Trauma

Birth injury and birth trauma fall under the category of medical malpractice.

The consequences of medical malpractice are often tragic, but never more so than when the victim is a baby who is injured during the birth process. Birth injuries can permanently compromise a child’s lifelong health, turning what should have been a joyous occasion into a time fraught with anxiety, fear and dread. If your child has suffered a birth injury, our attorneys in Akron, Ohio, may be able to help you to recover damages.

Birth injuries include shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy, skeletal deformities, and cerebral palsy. Our attorneys collaborate with reputable and world renowned medical experts to build the strongest case possible on your behalf, working toward a settlement if possible and fighting aggressively in court when necessary. We have the sensitivity and compassion to help your family through this period of intense suffering, as well as the experience and knowledge necessary in maximizing your recovery. We understand that nothing can truly compensate for the damage to your child’s health. However, birth injuries can involve major long-term expenses, and we want to help alleviate some of that financial burden. Your family has already paid enough in emotional costs; you shouldn’t have to suffer financially as well.

Our birth injury attorneys are experts in medical malpractice law. We have an intimate knowledge of medical regulations and the standards to which health care professionals are bound at all times. If your child was injured due to the failure of medical professionals to provide appropriate and timely care during the birth process, we can help you and your child achieve justice.
