Ohio Birth Injury Attorneys Know When Malpractice Occurs

Medical professionals may attempt to conceal communication errors, but our attorneys know how to spot birth negligence

During the birth of a child, there is usually a team of medical professionals assisting with labor and delivery. Anesthesiologists or nurse anesthetists administer an epidural. Nurses check vital signs and regularly check in on the mother. Doctors assess how well a mother is progressing. Several other medical professionals may also come in and out of the room. It is essential for the safety of both the mother and the baby that these medical professionals communicate frequently and clearly with each other. If they fail to do so, the mother or baby could be seriously injured. At The Eisen Law Firm, our Ohio birth negligence attorneys are experienced in studying medical records and know how to pinpoint when a serious communication error has occurred.
