Ohio Birth Injury Attorneys Pursue Justice for Infant Brain Injuries

Many babies suffer from permanent disabilities after suffering a brain injury at birth

In the United States, statistics show that roughly 28,000 babies are born with birth injuries every single year. Though some of these injuries are simply unavoidable due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, many injuries are due to the negligence of a medical professional. When a medical professional is negligent and injures a patient, Ohio law provides that the patient may recover damages. At The Eisen Law Firm, our Ohio birth injury lawyers are experienced in all types of birth injury claims, including those involving serious brain injuries. With our team of attorneys on your side, you can rest assured your legal interests are thoroughly protected. Since 1976, we have been staunch advocates for injured children and their families.

Types of brain injuries

Brain injuries that occur at birth may be mild, moderate, or severe in nature.

Mild brain injuries include:

Moderate brain injuries include:

Severe brain injuries include:

A child born with a brain injury may require constant care for the rest of his or her life, which can be extremely costly. Our attorneys aggressively pursue maximum compensation for your child, so ongoing care can be provided without causing financial hardship.

How long do I have to file a brain injury claim for my child?

In most medical negligence cases, there is a one-year statute of limitations to file a claim. If a claimant misses the statute of limitations, the claimant may be forever barred from recovering damages from the negligent medical professional or medical facility. However, in birth injury cases, Ohio law provides until the child’s 19th birthday to file a claim. It is better to file a claim as soon as possible to ensure all necessary witnesses and evidence are available in the case.
