Cleveland Birth Injury Attorney

Helping Mothers & Babies Who Have Suffered Due to Medical Malpractice

When a child is born, it should be one of the most joyous events of one’s lifetime. However, it is not uncommon for medical professionals to make preventable errors which can cause birth injuries such as cerebral palsy.

The mother may also suffer serious injuries or even wrongful death due to errors made by obstetricians, doctors, or nurses. If you or your child suffered an injury during pregancy, labor, or delivery, call (440) 220-4439 to discuss your case with our experienced birth injury law firm in Cleveland.

The Importance of Birth Injury Lawsuits

By filing a birth injury lawsuit, you can recover the monetary compensation you need to provide a full life for your child. It can also serve to hold the wrongdoer accountable for the actions that caused your child's pain and suffering.

Proving Medical Negligence in Birth Injury Cases

undefinedAlthough the trauma and consequences of a birth injury may be clear, these cases are extremely complex and difficult to prove. This makes it all the more important to work with a Cleveland birth injury attorney who has the skill, experience, and resources to make a difference in your case

The following must be taken into account when proving fault in a birth injury case:

  • Did the doctor, nurse, OBGYN, etc, have a duty of care to you and your child?
  • Did they breach their duty of care by failing to act or making an error?
  • Did their efforts or treatment deviate from the acceptable standard of care?

If you suspect medical negligence caused a birth injury to your child, or the mother, call The Lancione Law Firm today at (440) 220-4439 to see what we can do for you.
