Cleveland Birth Injury Attorneys

100+ Years of Collective Experience

Birth injury attorneys exist for a reason- an injury to a baby before, during, or after birth can be an overwhelming tragedy that is difficult to navigate. Countless questions emerge: How could this happen? Was it preventable? Was someone at fault? The answers to these questions may be the key to filing a birth injury lawsuit to recover some of the damages your family has suffered.

How Our Birth Injury Law Firm Can Help You

At The Becker Law Firm, we have medical experts on staff and employ a team of physicians to better understand every aspect of a case. We know the right questions to ask to ensure that the negligence which harmed you or your child is held accountable to the full extent of the law.

Bringing a birth injury claim is a complex undertaking. Recovering damages means going up against doctors, hospitals, and high-powered defense lawyers hired by insurance carriers that care more about profits than people.

The law firm you choose to handle your birth injury lawsuit must have the financial resources to pay for top medical experts and other costs associated with prosecuting a birth injury case. An effective birth injuries attorney must also have successful trial experience because providers are reluctant to settle out of court. 

Our Ohio birth injury attorneys have secured tens of millions of dollars for families and some of Ohio's largest malpractice verdicts and birth injury settlements.

    Full Justice for Your Family Is a Lifetime Calculation

    It is difficult for a family who is experiencing a tragedy such as a serious birth injury to put a monetary amount on the pain they are feeling. On top of that, it’s next to impossible to anticipate what their costs and needs resulting from this injury will be for the rest of their and their child’s lives.

    If someone in your family has suffered a birth injury, you have already experienced more pain and suffering than most people will ever have to bear. If someone was negligent or erred in causing that injury, the negligent party or parties must compensate you for your losses and pay to meet the needs their errors caused. You shouldn’t have your pain and suffering compounded again and again by being forced to pay for their mistakes.

    Full justice for your family means ensuring that this compensation is sufficient to meet your family’s lifetime needs and will allow you and your child to live fulfilling lives. The Becker Law Firm and its team of experts will work with your family to identify your losses, project their costs over a lifetime, and then fight tirelessly for the full justice that you and your family deserve.
