Cleveland OB/GYN Malpractice Lawyer
Investigating the Cause of Birth Injuries
Childbirth is one of the most perilous journeys anyone can make. Without proper monitoring and care during pregnancy and birth, the child can suffer heartbreaking injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy and brain damage.
Sometimes, birth injuries occur despite the best efforts of doctors and medical staff. However, injuries can also occur when a hospital or doctor fails to respond appropriately to a medical condition that develops during pregnancy or childbirth.
At the law firm of Dennis Seaman & Associates in Cleveland, Ohio, we offer a free case evaluation to answer your questions and determine whether our lawyers can do anything to help you.
Examples of medical negligence during pregnancy and childbirth include:
- Failure to order proper tests to detect birth defects or injuries
- Lack of fetal monitoring during child birth
- Overlooking a lack of oxygen to a child’s brain.
- Failure to respond to signs of infant distress
- Delaying a C-section which would avoided a birth injury
Filing an OB/GYN Malpractice Lawsuit
Parents go to lawyers for many reasons following a birth injury. One reason is to obtain compensation for medical costs their child will incur now and in the future. While a financial settlement can’t undo the damage that was done to a newborn, it can ensure your child receives the treatment and assistance to live as full a life as possible. It can also give the parents the financial ability to care for their child at home.
Many of our clients tell us that another reason they contact us is to help prevent similar injuries from happening to other families. Medical malpractice lawsuits have led to changes at many hospitals, including improved fetal monitoring and care during pregnancy and childbirth, and faster responses to signs of fetal distress.
