Cleveland Personal Injury Lawyer Representing Birth Injury Victims throughout the State of Ohio
In the United States it is estimated that approximately 8% of babies born every year suffer some type of complication due to a birth injury. Families that are victims of birth injuries often feel betrayed, hurt, and confused. If your child suffered a birth injury that was caused by the negligent, careless actions of another party, then you may have an actionable medical malpractice claim. While pursuing legal action cannot reverse or erase the injury that your child has suffered, it can help provide you with compensation that can assist you in caring for your child. Contact our Cleveland personal injury lawyer to find out what legal options you may have available.
