As patients, we trust nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals with our safety and expect them to provide appropriate medical care. When a medical professional is negligent and makes a preventable error, the consequences of that mistake can last a lifetime for the victim and their loved ones.
Causing thousands of severe injuries and avoidable deaths every year in the U.S., medical malpractice covers a wide range, including failure to correctly interpret diagnostic test results, misdiagnosis of a medical condition, surgical errors, poor follow-up or aftercare, premature discharge, prescription medication errors, and other treatment mistakes. Other examples of medical malpractice include emergency room errors, anesthesia mistakes, performing unnecessary surgery, surgery on the wrong part of the body, and disregarding a patient’s medical history.
Medical errors by negligent health care professionals often cause illnesses, infections, and devastating injuries that can be painful, debilitating, and permanent. Medical expenses typically skyrocket for victims of malpractice, and if a loved one died at the hands of a negligent doctor or hospital, the loss associated with that person’s death—both financial and emotional—can be too much to overcome. While victims of medical malpractice have recourse through the civil justice system, cases involving medical negligence are complex, subject to strict legal deadlines, and often difficult to prove without the right evidence.
That’s why you need an experienced attorney who knows what it takes to move your medical malpractice lawsuit forward and fight for the results you deserve. Don’t try to take on the other side’s team of attorneys on your own. Let us handle every aspect of your claim and be your voice for justice.
The birth of a child can be one of the greatest days of a parent’s life, but if your newborn baby suffers a preventable birth injury such as cerebral palsy or dies as the result of a medical professional’s negligence, the trauma is something that will change your life forever.
Birth injuries suffered by infants during delivery are often severe and can cause physical and/or mental disabilities that require special medical care and expensive treatment throughout the child’s lifetime.
Common examples of birth injuries include cerebral palsy, brain damage, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), cephalohematoma (blood under the scalp), trauma that causes facial paralysis, shoulder dystocia, bone fractures (e.g., broken clavicle, skull fracture, broken humerus, broken femur), brachial plexus palsy (paralysis of the infant’s arm), subconjunctival hemorrhages, and complications that arise from the misuse of forceps or vacuum extraction devices.
For the mother of the infant, severe and fatal injuries can occur due to a mishandled C-section, excessive hemorrhaging, misdiagnosis of pregnancy complications, and failure to act when a condition arises during labor or delivery.
If your baby suffered an injury due to the negligence of a health care professional such as a doctor, nurse, or OB/GYN, our Ohio birth injury lawyers can help you get a clear understanding of your legal rights and options. Let us review the details of your case and explain whether filing a birth injury lawsuit against a negligent medical professional or hospital is right for you. The key is to contact us right away so that you don’t miss important legal deadlines and we have enough time to investigate the circumstances surrounding the birth injury to build a strong case on your behalf.
