As a lawyer, there are times in my career that challenge me mentally, for which I prepare and conquer on a regular basis. Emotional, traumatic cases can seem too much to bear – but for me, serve as the ultimate motivation to gain fair compensation for my client. As a husband, a father, and as an attorney, I have a passion for fighting against medical negligence that resulted in a birth injury;  forever changing the lives of the victim and his/her family.

While it is traumatic and devastating, it is important to hold the responsible parties accountable

An extreme emotional spectrum occurs when the excitement and sheer joy that accompanies the anticipated arrival of a child changes to heartbreak and uncertainty as a result of a birth injury. When a birth injury occurs, it can be very difficult to comprehend all that has happened, and medical institutions are well versed in covering their tracks. It is important to know that you and your child have rights, and deserve compensation to help you now and in the future.

What is a birth injury?

Different from a birth defect, which can occur naturally due to genetic or environmental influences, a birth injury is a result of negligence or improper care. This can happen as an accident, an oversight, and even as a complete failure to provide adequate care.

Common birth injuries include, but are not limited to,

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Lack of Oxygen
  • Cesarean Injuries
  • Uterine Rupture
  • Preeclampsia / Eclampsia

The terminology alone can seem intimidating, but as your birth injury lawyer in Ohio, I will gather the supporting facts and hold those accountable for their unimaginable wrong doings.

As part of a birth injury settlement, we can achieve fair compensation for legal fees, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. You do not have to face this tragic situation alone, let me stand by your side and get you the justice you deserve.

Fair Compensation When a Birth Injury Occurs
I cannot stress enough how important it is to seek legal representation if you suspect your child suffered a birth injury as a result of a medical mistake. Doctors and hospitals will never admit a mistake occurred and furthermore will flatly deny it. You will need the help of an experienced birth injury attorney to dig into the facts of the case and prove a medical mistake did occur.
