Causes of Birth Injuries
As licensed medical professionals, your healthcare providers are responsible for administering sound treatment to you and your baby. If their actions or failure to act led to an injury, or even death, they can be held legally responsible for the long-term medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses you or your child have sustained.
As your Ohio birth injury lawyers, it’s our job to determine what caused you or your child’s birth injury and to hold the responsible parties accountable.
Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe negligence—or failure to exercise reasonable care—by a healthcare provider who fails to adhere to the accepted standards of practice for a procedure that results in death or injury. Birth injury cases are a subset of medical malpractice cases and are usually more complex than other personal injury cases.
When an injury happens that could have been prevented by an obstetrician, gynecologist, pediatrician, or other doctor treating you during your pregnancy or delivery, the birth injury lawyers at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy won’t hesitate to take legal action on your claim.
Our attorneys may be able to help if you or your child is suffering from any of the following preventable complications:
- Complication During Pregnancy
Injuries that occur during pregnancy may be the result of failure to run appropriate tests, failure to treat conditions, such as gestational diabetes, and more.
- Complication During Delivery
Breech birth, fetal distress, and oxygen deprivation are all examples of a complication caused during delivery.
- Complication After Delivery
If your postpartum condition was misdiagnosed, mistreated, or left untreated, or your child’s birth injury was left untreated, mistreated, or misdiagnosed, you may be the victim of a complication that occurred after delivery.
