Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorney and Hospital Negligence Lawyer investigating birth trauma lawsuits and cerebral palsy birth injury cases for plaintiffs nationwide
The majority of children are delivered in the United States healthy and without complications, however, thousands of birthing mothers and babies may suffer from serious, permanent injuries such as cerebral palsy and other permanent conditions. Around 30 of 1,000 babies in the U.S. suffer from birth trauma due to natural complications, hospital negligence, and delivery malpractice.
Birth trauma lawsuits can be filed by plaintiffs following serious newborn injuries and maternal injury that can be linked to hospital negligence or errors made by any medical staff member, including nurses, doctors and anesthesiologist. Common neonatal birth injuries warranting legal action may include cerebral palsy, congenital heart defects, broken bones, or Brachial Plexus Injuries.
The standard of medical care in American hospitals dictates that most birth injuries are preventable and should not take place. Should a hospital and professional medical staff fail to prevent a maternal or neonatal injury, birth trauma lawsuits filed with a medical malpractice attorney can recover medical expenses, pain and suffering, and long-term disability costs for severe and permanent birth injury.
