Studies show that in the United States, six out of every 1,000 babies born suffer from some form of birth injury. Even with our advanced technology and physician care, these injuries to occur and appropriate action must be taken if your child has been a victim. In Chicago we have some of the best hospitals in the country but these unfortunate accidents do happen. Malpractice attorneys in Chicago have represented clients for dozens of injuries but some are more common than others. If you are an expecting parent/couple you should pay close attention, however this information is important to anyone with a family. You could have a sister, cousin, or other relative expecting a baby and it is always beneficial to know if you need to hire a Chicago malpractice attorney or not.

Here is a list of common birth injuries in Chicago:

Cerebral Palsy

Although some causes offer no distinguishable causes, CP can be caused by asphyxia prior to birth, complications in the prenatal period, or birth trauma during labor and delivery. All of the foremost malpractice attorneys in Chicago have experience representing families with children who have been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

Brain Damage

Congenital brain damage occurs as a result of genetics or birth trauma. Signs of brain damage can be exhibited in several different ways and not every child will display the same symptoms due to the severity and locality of the brain damage.

Broken Bones&nbsp

Although some situations require the doctor to break the clavicle to ease childbirth, not all broken bones are intentional. If the doctor was using forceps and caused a fracture you must hire a Chicago malpractice attorney to represent you. There is no excuse for this medical negligence.

The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion, but sometimes this joy can quickly turn to stress and worry. If your child has suffered an unfortunate birth defect, do the right thing and consult a malpractice attorney in Chicago immediately. You should be spending your time with your family, not worrying about what to do. Acting fast is always the best course of action and after a free consultation you will be represented immediately.
