Raising a healthy child is expensive. But, when you’re raising a child who sustained a birth injury, you have additional medical expenses for rehabilitation, therapy, and even life-long, daily care. The cost can be overwhelming.
You shouldn’t be left with the burden of medical expenses when someone else’s actions caused your child’s injuries. The Cleveland birth injury lawyers at Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy are here to hold the person responsible for your or your child’s injuries financially accountable.
