Ohio Fetal Monitoring Negligence Attorneys

Birth Injury Legal Services for a Combined 60-Plus Years in Cleveland

Fetal distress is a general term for birth and labor complications usually involving an unborn infant's lack of oxygen. During pregnancy, fetal distress is usually detected by members of the mother's obstetric team through the review of fetal monitoring strips. During labor, it's detected through the use of fetal stethoscopes, electronic fetal heart monitoring equipment and other diagnostic tools. Symptoms of fetal distress include a slow, fast or irregular fetal heart rate.

When medical care providers fail to detect fetal distress, or detect fetal distress but fail to provide an effective response and injuries occur, parents may be owed compensation. At Anderson Law Offices, LLC, we have handled hundreds of birth injury cases. Our credentials include:

  • Four and a half decades of combined casework experience handling medical malpractice claims
  • Dozens of settlement and jury awards exceeding $1 million
  • Involvement in numerous and complex class action cases resulting in billions of dollars recovered for thousands of injured people

Numerous responses can prevent injuries following indications of fetal distress, including repositioning the mother, administering oxygen by mask, checking for umbilical cord problems and ensuring that qualified personnel are in attendance for care of the newborn.

Unfortunately, despite these effective responses, preventable injuries from fetal distress often occur.
