Ohio Birth Injury Attorney

Helping Mothers & Babies Who Have Suffered Due to Obstetrical Malpractice

When a child is born, it is one of the most joyous events of one’s lifetime. However, preventable medical errors can be made by medical professionals which cause birth injuries such as irreversible brain damage, including cerebral palsy. The mother may also suffer serious injuries or even wrongful death due to errors made by obstetricians, OB/GYNs, or nurses. Birth injuries can affect children and their families for the rest of their life.

The Lancione Law Firm has an 80-year legacy of fighting for families across Ohio and the U.S. We are responsible for obtaining countless multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements involving birth injuries and medical malpractice litigation. We are here to seek justice for your injuries or loss.

Call (440) 220-4439 or contact us online for a free case review with Ohio birth injury lawyer John A. Lancione. He has 30 years of experience representing children, mothers, and families.

The consequences of birth injuries create severe emotional, medical, and financial hardship for the entire family. Birth injuries caused by medical professionals are usually preventable. Frequently, medical negligence can cause irreversible harm to mother or baby. These injuries will impact the child for the rest of their life, creating medical, emotional, and financial hardships for their families as well. They may cause painful and debilitating injuries to the mother, or even result in the unnecessary loss of a new mother’s life.

Although 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 an Ohio birth injury attorney who has the skill, experience, and resources to make a difference in your case.

We Have Decades of Experience Investigating & Litigating Birth Injury Claims

John Lancione is an expert at identifying and litigating all types of preventable birth injuries, including:

  • Birth injuries that result in brain damage that can lead to cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, or the stillbirth of your child.
  • Any harm suffered by the mother during birth, including infections, blood clots, or excessive bleeding.
  • Failure to diagnose preeclampsia or other life-threatening conditions, resulting in maternal death.
  • Birth injuries caused by certain action or failure to act involving fetal distress, placental abruption, preeclampsia, premature rupture of membranes, prenatal care errors, preterm delivery, uterine ruptures, midwife error, infection, and more.
  • Complications that occur during birthing involving drugs used to arrest labor, inducing labor, fetal monitoring, forceps/vacuum extraction deliveries, umbilical cords, breech birth, or delayed birth.
  • Medical facilities or professionals failing to have the proper emergency safeguards in place, such as a timely emergency C-section. When there is a delay in an emergency situation that affects the childbirth process, it can cause severe brain injuries, including cerebral palsy.
  • Mishandling an infant with shoulder dystocia: In childbirth, an infant’s shoulder can be become lodged in the mother’s pelvis. Not using the proper care and procedures to deliver a baby with shoulder dystocia can stretch the brachial plexus, which is attached to several nerves that enter the base of the skull. A child born with brachial plexus injuries can suffer Erb’s palsy, Klumpke’s Palsy, and other disabilities, including cerebral palsy.
  • Critical errors in prenatal care and high-risk birth management, including misdiagnosing gestational diabetes and other pregnancy conditions can result in babies who require specialized care in childbirth.
