A birth injury can often be the result of improper care provided by a doctor or hospital during childbirth. Approximately seven babies out of 1,000 are injured during labor and delivery. Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy, can be devastating and present physical, emotional, and financial challenges for a family.
While Ohio may be home to cutting edge medicine, every year doctors, nurses and hospitals in the state are responsible for providing substandard healthcare to their patients. Since 1990, an estimated $668 million in settlements have been paid to Ohio families who have suffered a birth injury. Payouts have been awarded to cover lifelong care costs such as medicine, therapy, rehabilitation, schooling and assistive devices.
