Neonatal Medical Malpractice

The consequence of a doctor or other medical professional's mistake during birth or during pregnancy is the most severe because it can result in lifelong consequences for a child and family. Even doctors who are trying to do a good job can make mistakes if they are overworked, tired or dealing with personal issues.

Who is expected to pay for these long-lasting injuries and damages if not the doctor's health insurance? The victim's family?

At Rittgers & Rittgers, we handle all types of neonatal malpractice cases. From medication mismanagement during pregnancy to failure to perform proper genetic testing during pregnancy based on the parent's background, history and parental request, we understand how to construct comprehensive cases in this technical area of medical malpractice. We also handle serious cases where there was improper use of instruments like forceps or complications during delivery as well as failure to diagnose a condition.

If your child was injured or died because of negligence on the part of the doctor, or failure to diagnose a serious condition, contact our Cincinnati medical malpractice attorneys today to schedule a consultation to learn about your options.
