Causes of Birth Injuries

Many birth injuries are completely avoidable

In a birth injury claim, it is alleged that a medical professional, through some type of negligence or carelessness, injured a baby or a mother. Birth injury claims may stem from a medical professional’s negligence during pregnancy, during labor and delivery, and during the neonatal period (which is typically defined as the first 30 days after the birth of a baby).

In the United States, between 6 and 8 of every 1,000 babies born suffers some type of birth injury. Many babies recover from their injuries in a short period of time. However, other babies who sustain injuries at or near the time of birth may suffer serious long-term or even permanent injuries. At The Eisen Law Firm, our Ohio medical malpractice lawyers take birth injury claims seriously. For several decades, we have been relentless advocates, laser-focused on justice and obtaining maximum financial recovery for injured children.
