Birth Injury Attorneys in Columbus

Providing Compassionate & Dedicated Representation

Few if any events in people’s lives create more joy than the birth of a child. Unfortunately, this joy sometimes changes to sorrow, pain, and a lifetime of special needs and disabilities as the result of trauma during birth. While sometimes unavoidable, sadly, many forms of birth trauma such as brain injuries and paralysis are avoidable, but they can occur due to errors on the part of healthcare professionals.

These errors can include:

  • Failure to recognize and respond to decreased oxygen or blood supply to the baby during labor and delivery
  • Medication errors
  • Misuse of surgical tools
  • Improper use of forceps or suction
  • Delayed C-section
  • Failure to diagnose fetal distress
