Former Client Featured in USA Today to Promote Maternal Safety

USA Today recently published an article featuring a former client as part of their "Deadly Deliveries" series detailing their investigation into maternal safety and childbirth complications in the United States. Leeseberg & Valentine represented Emilee Strezinski after she suffered complications while delivering her daughter at Community Memorial Hospital in Hicksville, Ohio. During her delivery, her doctor decided to do an episiotomy, a surgical cut to the vagina during childbirth, that resulted in severe lacerations to her rectum, anus, and sphincter and caused significant pain, leakage, constipation, and incontinence. Emilee alleged her physician was negligent in performing the episitomy and Leeseberg & Valentine was ultimately able to secure a significant settlement on her behalf.
