Chicago, IL Infant Injuries and Birth Injury Lawyers

In the United States, more than 50 babies a day are born suffering from medical negligence. Medical negligence and malpractice can lead to birth injuries and health defects that last a lifetime, from skull fractures to cerebral palsy, and with those conditions can come a lifetime of associated medical costs and emotional distress.

If medical negligence has put your newborn in harm’s way, you and your little one shouldn’t be left to deal with the consequences on your own—an experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help.

How Birth Injuries Happen

As experienced Chicago birth injury attorneys know, infant injuries and birth complications can arise for a variety of reasons. For example, negligence during the delivery can easily lead to life-altering accidents that irrevocably compromise your baby’s physical well-being. Mishandling the child immediately after birth can also cause terrible injuries—even negligence during your prenatal care can have devastating effects on the health of your newborn.

Paying for a Lifetime

If your child is born with or develops health conditions as a result of negligence and poor medical care, the amount of emotional distress that you and your child will go through can be immeasurable. A birth injury can result in medical problems that last a lifetime and permanently cripple your child, all because of someone’s lack of care. However, that isn’t the only price you both pay. Caring for a special needs child requires a level of care that most parents don’t know, including special safety precautions, education, physical therapy, medications and operations. You should never be forced into a position of financial hardship as a consequence of someone else’s carelessness, which is why Chicago’s top birth injury attorneys will always advocate for your child’s wellbeing.

Because medical errors and negligence are considered a form of medical malpractice, lawyers will take your case to court if need be, so that you and your child receive the care and compensation you deserve. If someone’s behavior has compromised the health and well-being of your newborn, you don’t have to quietly accept it—you can hold them accountable in accordance with the law.
