The birth of a baby often requires the assistance of an experienced medical professional to ensure that the delivery is a success and that your child is born healthy. However, if your medical practitioner fails to recognize the early warning signs of fetal distress, fails to act to prevent serious damage, and/or behaves in a way that causes significant injury to your child, the results can be devastating.
While birth injuries can occur as a natural part of the birthing process, when a physician, midwife, or nurse is responsible for a preventable birth injury, it is important to seek help from a birth injury lawyer who can determine whether or not negligence occurred in your case. Trauma to the infant before, during and after delivery can result in serious injury, including:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brain Injury
- Facial Paralysis
- Uterine Rupture
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Cranial Nerve Injury
Proving a medical practitioner’s negligence can be difficult. The doctors and their insurance carriers will typically claim that the birth injuries already occurred in utero and that there was no way to avoid them. However, our Chicago birth injury lawyers will utilize careful investigation, diligent research, and credible expert testimony in order to prove a medical practitioner’s negligence.
Whatever injury your child has suffered, our Illinois birth injury attorneys are prepared to fight for justice on behalf of your child and any serious injury he or she may have sustained as a result of a negligent physician’s work.
