Bringing a medical malpractice claim is a complex undertaking. Recovering damages means going up against doctors, hospitals, and the high-powered defense lawyers hired by insurance carriers. The law firm that takes your case must have the financial resources to pay for top medical experts and other associated enormous costs in prosecuting a birth injury case. Finally, attorneys must have actual successful trial experience because providers are reluctant to settle out of court.
The Ohio birth injury litigation lawyers at The Becker Law Firm have secured major verdicts and settlements. We pride ourselves on prevailing in cases that other law firms have rejected as hopeless. We are constantly educating ourselves on ways to establish fault to hold medical professionals accountable for failing to meet the accepted standard of care.

Compensation for Birth Injury
We understand that the impact of a birth injury is both financial and emotional. We work with life care planners to calculate the costs in future dollars of caring for a child with special needs. We seek no less than the full damages for medical care and therapy, medications, medical equipment, special services, and the projected earnings of the child. Our settlement demands also include damages for the victim’s lost quality of life, pain and suffering, and the emotional suffering of the parents.
The Becker Law Firm employs every strategy to convince the insurance company or a jury that the injury was preventable and that the family should be compensated fairly. We take no attorney fees unless we win compensation, and we always provide a free case evaluation for prospective clients.
