Cincinnati Infections Lawyers

Infections can be harmful to anyone no matter their age, but they are especially dangerous for newborns whose immune systems are not yet fully developed. For the first few years of their lives, infants are susceptible to many different types of post-natal infections that could cause serious illness or even death. Unsanitary hospital conditions and unsterilized equipment cause infections for thousands of people every year, and a newly delivered infant is at a higher risk of infection than most.

If you believe that your newborn has contracted an infection or illness because of negligent care at the hospital, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with the subsequent medical treatment. Contact a Cincinnati personal injury attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 today to learn more about your legal options.

Common Post-Natal Infections

In order to keep a newborn free of infection, hospital employees must use safe and sanitary procedures to deliver and care for the baby after he or she is born. If a baby does develop an infection, it is important to detect the illness and fight the infection right away. If the illness is not detected or diagnosed, the infection can lead to serious complications. Some common infections that target newborns are:

  • Staphylococcal infections
  • Listeria
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Group B streptococcus
  • E. coli
  • Hepatitis B

Any of these infections could make your newborn seriously ill, and some can result in permanent disabilities for your precious son or daughter. This is unacceptable.
