Brain Injury During Birth


Birth injuries require responsiveness. First, your doctor and the medical care provider should do everything in their power to prevent errors during birth and quickly correct any potential for errors. A neurosurgeon can step in if this is necessary in some cases. If brain injury occurs during birth, however, you should contact an experienced and accomplished birth injury lawyer as soon as possible.

At Weisman, Kennedy & Berris Co., L.P.A., we put the health of your child before everything else. Our top priority is securing the future of your child. We will fight for a fair resolution of the problems you have encountered, and we will seek maximum compensation for your child’s injuries, but effective protection of your child’s health comes first. Our Cleveland birth injury attorneys have extensive experience and medical knowledge to put to use in your case.

We are knowledgeable and informed of all the possible errors and deviations from standards of care that might cause brain injury during a birth procedure. We are prepared to pursue the maximum recovery our clients deserve, and we can help you stand up to any hospital, doctor, or other medical provider responsible for damaging injuries.

Compassionate Care and Passionate Pursuit of Medical Negligence Claims

When there are complications during birth that may have caused serious brain injury, already strained emotions can skyrocket to uncontrollable levels. Brain injury during birth can be particularly traumatic. The management and counsel of an experienced attorney is essential in these situations. Our attorneys can help you identify the cause(s) of injury through independent investigation, evaluate your options for recovery, prepare thoroughly in collaboration with medical experts and pursue compensation you need now and in the future.

We will perform a comprehensive analysis and preparation of your case for your best possible results. We are prepared to fight for your compensation from any provider that has caused damage to your child’s brain under any circumstance, including:

  • Birth asphyxia, or lack of oxygen supply before, during or following birth
  • Failure to monitor, recognize or respond to fetal distress
  • Failure to provide emergency safeguards
  • Errors in prenatal care
  • Misuse of medical instruments during childbirth
  • Mishandling of an infant with shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to respond to any issues that might cause brain damage
  • Wrongful death

Our goal is to provide you with the compensation your child will require in order to live the highest quality life possible. Deviations from standards of care by medical professionals or facilities can cause severe injury, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, future disability expenses and others.
