Seeking Justice for the Parents of Birth Injury Victims
Nothing matters more to a new parent than having a healthy, happy baby. But unfortunately, not all births go according to plans. Cerebral palsy, one of the most common of all congenital disorders, is often caused by injuries suffered by the central nervous system before or during birth. If your baby is suffering from cerebral palsy, you need to speak to a lawyer about your legal options.
At Gervelis Law Firm, we are committed to achieving justice for the victims of birth injuries in Ohio. These injuries are completely preventable, and negligent health care professionals must be held accountable.
When it comes to investigating birth injuries and seeking full compensation, time is of the essence. If you know, or even suspect, that your baby has cerebral palsy, call toll free 888-325-3452 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.

- After delivery: stroke or infection
