Cleveland Gestational Diabetes Attorney

Ohio Pregnancy Diabetes Lawyers

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

Gestational diabetes or pregnancy diabetes is a condition in which women without previously diagnosed diabetes exhibit high blood glucose levels during their pregnancies.

Though gestational diabetes generally has few symptoms, babies born to mothers with pregnancy diabetes typically face increased injury risk, usually from problems resulting from being large for gestational age. Large babies may be injured during birth from:

  • Erb's palsy, shoulder dystocia and brachial plexus palsy, all of which are related and most often involve the infant's shoulder being caught below the mother's pubic bone.
  • The need to use forceps during delivery. Forceps can cause a range of harms and losses, including facial nerve damage, spinal injuries, bruising, lacerations, skull fracturing, brain hemorrhaging, shoulder dislocation and bone fractures.

When gestational diabetes goes undetected, or complications resulting from gestational diabetes are not competently and effectively addressed and birth injuries occur as a result, parents can often file a lawsuit for compensation.

If your child was injured due to complications from pregnancy diabetes, contact the Cleveland gestational diabetes lawyers of Anderson Law Offices, LLC. We have recovered substantial awards in hundreds of cases by skillfully addressing key questions, including:

  • Did the medical care providers meet all standards of care?
  • Did the deviation from the standard of care directly cause the injury?
