Medical Malpractice Against Ohio's Children
As adults, we have control over which doctors we see and which treatment we receive. When it comes to children, they do not enjoy this luxury and they must blindly trust the doctors and nurses who care for them. When an infant or child is injured at the hands of a negligent medical professional, or if their serious medical condition is misdiagnosed, or undiagnosed, the consequences can be heartbreaking.
If you believe your child was injured as a result of medical malpractice, or worse, if your infant or child has died because of an error made by a negligent doctor, pediatrician, nurse, anesthesiologist, or hospital, The Moore Law Firm can help.
Filing a WrongfulDeath Claim
While a lawsuit cannot erase the heartache, it can pay for your child's medical and funeral bills, and bring some semblance of peace knowing that justice has been served. If your child has suffered serious injuries as a result of a physician's error, a medication error, an emergency room error, a birth injury, or due to any other cause, we urge you to contact The Moore Law Firm for help.
