Birth Injuries Caused By Medical Negligence Are Not Acceptable
Was medical malpractice a factor? Errors made by delivery teams or obstetricians, negligent prenatal or postnatal care, or pregnancy-related medical errors can cause lifelong, possibly fatal, injuries to babies and mothers.
At Leeseberg & Valentine, our Columbus-based attorneys recognize birth injuries for what they are – medical malpractice and negligence. We represent mothers and families throughout Ohio who have birth injury cases of all different types, including:
- Cerebral palsy disorder
- Lack of oxygen to the fetus during birth
- Shoulder dystocia, which may cause Erb’s palsy or brachial plexus birth palsy (infant arm weakness and loss of motion)
- Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) or “failure to progress” during labor
- Uterine rupture
- Placenta rupture
- Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) monitoring errors
A delay in ordering a cesarean section (C-section) once any of these complications occur can amplify injuries quickly. Some birth injuries may be remedied through proper medical and parental care after the fact, but you should still explore your legal options. The road to recovery is often difficult, lengthy and expensive.
