Trusted Chicago Birth Injury Attorneys Fighting for Families who are Victims of Medical Malpractice

In today’s world, the very idea of a birth injury is shocking.

With all of modern medicine’s advances in pregnancy care and childbirth, one might expect the rate of birth injury in Illinois to be next to nothing. Indeed, it should be. But it’s not.

In fact, birth injuries are surprisingly common all across the United States, including right here in Chicago. Many are very serious in nature and some even result in the heartbreaking loss of the mother or the child.

Gone are the days when childbirth was an inherently life-threatening process and every mother feared for her survival. Today’s advances in medical science have all but eliminated those threats. So why do birth injuries persist?

Sadly, most of today’s birth injuries are caused by medical malpractice. Doctors and nurses are crucial to society, but while most of them are very good people who try very hard to take great care of their patients, they do make mistakes.

Some birth injuries happen because doctors don’t spot warning signs during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. In other cases, doctors simply don’t have enough experience to handle a crisis when it arises.

Whatever the cause, birth injuries are heartbreaking, and victims deserve compensation. We all depend on the expertise of healthcare professionals, and we need them to exercise due care when bringing new life into this world.

After all, it isn’t your job to understand medical warning signs, make a diagnosis, write a prescription, or perform a life-saving procedure. Those are the healthcare professionals’ responsibilities, and if they breach their standards of care, they can be held liable for the damages.

The birth injury attorneys at Malman Law have helped countless families in the face of trauma during the last twenty years. We’ve recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.

These are some of the most challenging and emotionally demanding cases we handle. We understand, though, that the victims of birth injury have a long and difficult road before them, and it is our mission to get them as much financial relief as possible for the journey ahead.
