Experienced Lawyers For Neonatal Medical Malpractice Cases

The consequence of a doctor’s mistake or that of another medical professional during pregnancy, labor or delivery is the most severe when it can result in lifelong consequences for a child and family. Even doctors who are trying to do their jobs well can make mistakes if they are overworked, tired or distracted. Who is expected to pay for these long-lasting injuries and damages if not the doctor’s liability insurance? The victim’s family? Through birth injury claims, parents have opportunities to recover compensation their babies will need to cope with disabilities.

At Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima, we handle all types of neonatal malpractice cases. Our clients reach us at our law offices in Cincinnati, Oxford and other communities in the region. 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 address medical errors and construct comprehensive cases on behalf of each client with a neonatal negligence case. We also bring lawsuits over the improper use of instruments like forceps, mismanaged complications during delivery and failure to diagnose a condition during prenatal care.

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 and Oxford medical malpractice attorneys today to schedule a consultation to learn about your options.
