In this era of high-tech medicine, it’s difficult to even imagine: an infant coming into the world with a birth injury. Research shows that about 7 out of every 1000 babies born in the United States suffer a disease or injury resulting from medical negligence or carelessness.
These injuries may include broken bones, brain damage, cerebral palsy, Erb’s (brachial) palsy, and other life-altering physical conditions that might have been prevented. Such injuries can have a severe and long-term impact on a young child, parents and other loved ones. If you suspect your child may have suffered a birth injury it is vital that you contact our experienced and compassionate Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers to discuss what happened. We are here to help.
