Toledo Birth Injury Attorneys

When the birth of a child turns tragic, the grief and depression that follow can be paralyzing. At a time like this, having someone you can trust to focus on taking care of your legal needs while you focus on your family and recovery is vital. Contact the lawyers of Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, and put our four decades of experience as a law firm to work for you.

At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we represent birth injury victims and families in the Toledo area and throughout Ohio and help them to obtain FULL compensation in cases of:

  • Failure to diagnose fetal distress
  • Failure to diagnose hypoxia leading to brain damage
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Forceps injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia (Erb’s palsy)
  • Injuries to the mother (preeclampsia and eclampsia)

Some birth injury cases are not preventable. However, even if all you find out is that the doctors and nurses did everything they possibly could, talking to an experienced medical malpractice attorney can still lead you to a better understanding of the situation and more often than not, the closure you’ve been looking for.

If we believe that malpractice did occur in your case, our proven ability to convey complex medical information using sophisticated exhibits and clear testimony is an invaluable asset to your claim. If you decide to hire us, we will do everything we can to hold responsible parties accountable for their mistakes and the harm they’ve done to you and your family. In permanent injury cases, this can also involve working closely with Life Care Planning experts to account for all of the medical needs and expenses the injured person and their family will need in the future to maintain a high quality of life.

As always, your level of involvement in this process will be entirely up to you. However, we will keep you fully informed at all times so that you can make sound legal decisions about the case.
