Cleveland Labor and Delivery Negligence Attorneys Give Your Family a Voice Following Traumatic Birth Events
More than 40 years of experience holding negligent doctors, nurses and hospitals responsible for preventable mistakes with devastating consequences
Childbirth is often a long and strenuous process that presents many different types of potential challenges. Doctors, nurses and patient care techs are responsible for monitoring the health status of both the mother and child and must react quickly and appropriately to handle any situation that may arise. Failing to identify and treat problems during labor and delivery often leads to tragic and long-term consequences. The Cleveland medical malpractice attorneys at The Eisen Law Firm help families get the justice and compensation they deserve for injuries suffered during the childbirth process. We take the time to listen to your specific needs and develop a comprehensive strategy designed with your best interests in mind.
Providing the legal and medical resources you need to understand your options and make sound decisions
Birth injuries encompass a wide variety of medical consequences that are often caused by the negligence of your healthcare team. Injuries that occur during the labor and delivery process are entirely preventable in many cases and are attributed to specific instances of negligence. Our attorneys routinely accept cases involving:
- Birth asphyxia
- Delay in delivery
- Delay in performing emergency Cesareans
- Shoulder dystocia
- Failure to resuscitate or inadequate resuscitation
- Fetal distress
- Surgical mistakes during C-Sections
Each of these labor and delivery problems presents its own unique challenges for both mother and child. Regardless of what type of injury you or your child has suffered, our compassionate team of negligence attorneys is ready to help you achieve a positive resolution.
Understanding how seemingly simple mistakes lead to devastating consequences during labor and delivery
The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyful and peaceful process. Unfortunately, in many cases preventable hospital and medical errors cause irreversible harm. Hospital staff members are required to monitor the health of both mother and child. Failing to properly identify potential complications and react in a timely manner often exacerbates fetal distress leading to oxygen deprivation and delayed deliveries.
Communication between family members and staff members is vital to ensuring that you receive proper medical attention and care. Timely decision-making is a key element in preventing birth injuries. Prolonged labors and delayed deliveries or C-Sections have the potential to cause serious harm and even death to both mother and child. The failure of medical personnel to listen to your concerns and react properly is unacceptable. Our Cleveland medical negligence attorneys take the time to fully investigate your case, gather evidence and consult with medical experts to provide comprehensive representation designed to help you get the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Birth injuries sustained during the labor and delivery process are preventable in a vast majority of cases. In one of our recent confidential settlements, poor medical care and hospital care resulted in the death of a newborn baby, and in another, the inaction of a midwife and obstetrician resulted in the death of a newborn. Both of these were preventable and birth injury lawyers at The Eisen Law Firm were able to prove that medical negligence caused this harm.
