Cerebral palsy is actually a group of diverse conditions with many possible causes, including premature birth, severe jaundice, lack of oxygen to the fetus and infections during pregnancy. Cerebral palsy causes differing levels of physical and mental dysfunction, from difficulty talking and moving to the inability to complete everyday tasks. Most children with cerebral palsy need additional medical care, physical therapy and support. It is estimated that the cost of this care can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Birth injuries are among the most difficult cases we see. When a child struggles with an unnecessary birth injury, parents are forced to cope with the lifelong effects of that injury, but they also must deal with the rage they feel toward the doctor when they learn the injury was preventable. At the law offices of Friedman, Domiano & Smith, we work with parents who have suffered such heartbreak by filing medical malpractice claims in Ohio courts. Read about our verdicts and settlements in birth-injury cases.
One of the best ways to obtain the resources necessary for this care is to take legal action. By filing a lawsuit in Ohio courts, we can hold a health care professional responsible for the harm caused. Call us today at 800-280-0070 to learn more about your rights, or complete our online form.
