Cincinnati Facial Paralysis Lawyers

Newborn babies are extremely fragile, making them highly susceptible to injury during and immediately after delivery. Parents trust doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals in the delivery room, but unfortunately, accidents and mistakes do occur that can have serious effects on a newborn baby. One such effect is facial paralysis, and this can occur when too much force is applied to a baby’s face during birth. This injury is particularly common when forceps are used in delivery.

If your child has suffered from a birth injury caused by a medical professional’s mistake, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation for your child’s unnecessary suffering. Contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 to begin your pursuit of justice today.

Facial Paralysis Complications

Statistics show that 50 percent of facial paralysis victims complete a spontaneous recovery within the first 30 days without treatment, and that 30 percent fully recover within four to six months. Unfortunately, this leaves 20 percent who do not ever fully recover and may suffer from long-term complications such as:

  • Reduced control of mouth muscles
  • Paralysis on one side of the face
  • Inability or difficulty closing eyes on one side

If your child has suffered from these or any other effects of facial paralysis due to the carelessness of a medical professional, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Through a successful birth injury lawsuit, you may be able to secure compensation for your child’s medical bills, pain and suffering, and other injury-related losses.
