It can be devastating for an Ohio family to learn their child suffered injuries during the birth process. Injuries and damage sustained during and immediately after birth can result in serious health complications that can affect the child for the rest of his or her life. At Piscitelli Law Firm, we help families navigate this difficult time and fight for what they need to properly care for their baby.
Our founding attorney Frank Piscitelli is extensively experienced in various types of medical malpractice cases, including birth injuries. He understands the struggles faced by families dealing with the implications of medical mistakes. If your child suffered due to an error committed by medical professionals during the birth process, he can help your family fight for the full and fair recovery you deserve.
Types Of Birth Injury Cases
From our office location in Mentor, we help clients throughout the northeastern parts of Ohio understand their legal options regarding medical malpractice claims. When pursuing compensation on behalf of birth injury victims, we fight for fair compensation for both immediate medical concerns and continued care your child may need in the future for any of the following types of injuries:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain damage
- Retinopathy of prematurity
- Shoulder dystocia
Sadly, many birth injuries are preventable through means that include proper monitoring, attentive nurses and proper implementation of interventions. For certain types of birth injuries, such as retinopathy of prematurity, there is a small window of time during which you can get the right treatment for this issue. Your quick action from the moment you learn of a problem could be beneficial for your child as well as potential medical malpractice claim.
