Ohio Birth Injury Claims: 2 Common Categories Involving Medical Negligence

The Becker Law Firm, LPA

If you had complications during your labor or delivery, and you know or suspect that your child is not behaving or developing normally, he or she may have experienced a birth injury. Ohio attorneys who specialize in birth injury settlements often advise parents to have their children medically assessed as soon as suspicions arise because the statute of limitations applies in filing a medical malpractice claim.

2 Common Categories of Birth Injury Involving Medical Negligence

Not every birth injury case is the result of medical negligence; however, there are 2 common categories most cases involving medical negligence fall under, which include:

  • Failure to assess or respond correctly – A doctor is expected to provide proper medical care during pregnancy and delivery. A medical malpractice claim may be warranted if a medical issue, such as hypertension in the mother or the size of the baby, is not diagnosed and treated correctly.
  • Guidance and supervision of prescription drugs – If a mother is given a prescription drug, she and the baby should be monitored carefully. Sometimes the baby may not tolerate the drug given and cause more problems.
