Cincinnati External Birth Injury Lawyers

Even with modern advances in medicine and delivery room procedures, labor and delivery is still a complicated and often risky process for both the mother and the child. Birth injuries can vary in severity and while children can recover naturally from many injuries, there are some that can cause a lifetime of pain, suffering, and serious health defects. Birth injuries caused by medical malpractice can happen if a medical professional misuses the vacuum, forceps, or even shows a lack of care during delivery.

If your child suffered injury due to the negligence of a doctor or nurse in the course of birth, contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 today to schedule a free consultation. We will work to get you the financial compensation you deserve for having the excitement over your child’s birth disrupted by failures of care.

External Injury Consequences

External injuries during child birth typically happen when the doctor or nurse has to use an unusual amount of force during delivery, or even improperly uses delivery tools. External injuries can be mild or can even cause a lifetime of suffering. Some of the most common types are bruising or bleeding of the head. The following are more problematic:

  • Infections
  • Prolonged pain and discomfort
  • Scarring
  • Need for future medical care or rehabilitation

Your child will need a significant amount of medical attention and care in case of any of these injuries and you should not have to bear the burden of these costs.
