Medical providers who care for pregnant mothers and assist in labor, delivery, and childbirth have legal duties to treat patients in accordance with the accepted standards of their profession. When they fail to do so, often due to negligence, they can be held liable for the damages victims suffer as a result.
At The Becker Law Firm, our Toledo birth injury lawyers have spent decades litigating complex birth injury claims across Ohio and the nation and have earned a record of success in high-stakes cases.
We know how insurance companies fight to deny liability when providers fail to meet their “duty of care”and what’s needed to develop arguments that support claims. This insight makes our clients confident knowing their cases are in capable hands and positions them to obtain full compensation.

Birth Injury Claims We Handle
Since 1980, The Becker Law Firm has focused solely on protecting the rights of clients who’ve suffered harm and losses due to the negligence of others. If you believe a birth injury resulted from substandard care, you may be able to bring a claim against the at-fault party (or parties).

Failures to prevent, diagnose or treat:
- Fetal distress
- Placental abruption
- Prolapsed umbilical cord
- Gestational diabetes
- Oxygen deprivation
Negligent management of high-risk births, including:
- Premature births
- Suspected large fetus
- Multiple births (twins, triplets)
- Delayed C-sections or failures to perform emergency C-sections
Trauma during delivery involving:
- Improper use of forceps / vacuum extractors
- Improper delivery technique
- Shoulder dystocia

From infant brain damage, HIE, and cerebral palsy to lasting physical, financial, and emotional strains, birth injuries can profoundly alter families’ lives. At The Becker Law Firm, we’re committed to helping victims fight back against negligent providers for the compensation needed to navigate their futures.
