When you or your family is forced to deal with the horrible reality of a birthing injury, it is critical to hire a lawyer who specializes in birth injury cases and is familiar with birthing complications. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we have a proven record of successful verdicts and settlements in birth injury cases all over Ohio. When newborns are injured because of the medical negligence of health care providers, the infants and their families will face numerous medical, physical, financial, and emotional challenges.

The newborn may require years of aftercare, therapy, and medical support that is a financial burden to their family. Some parents must quickly learn how to raise a child with special needs. Sadly, many babies would have been born completely healthy had these complications not occurred. Birth injuries affect approximately 7 out of every 1,000 newborns in the U.S. Our firm is dedicated to helping parents understand their child’s condition and guiding them through the process of securing the care, support, and compensation they deserve.
