Birth Errors

A Record of Success in Birth Injury Cases

The unfortunate reality is that too many births result in serious personal injury or wrongful death of the child due to medical malpractice. Over the course of more than 30 years, our lawyers have represented countless parents in these emotional cases. In Chicago, Illinois, and throughout the country, we have built a reputation for the results we have obtained for aggrieved clients.

We Want To Get Positive Results for You

Our law firm will work hard to make your birth injury case a success. We will commit ourselves to pursuing fair compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, disability and other damages.

The common theme that tends to run through birth injury cases is that they are all complex. With experience on our side, our attorneys know how to address these complex matters. We know how to take on all birth injury cases, including those that involve:

  • Fetal Distress During Childbirth
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's Palsy and Brachial Plexus
  • Shoulder Dystocia
  • Perinatal Transmission of Infections

Many birth injury cases could have been prevented. Our job is to work with experts to prove that, if not for medical negligence, your child would have been born healthy.

We will work with experts to investigate whether doctors missed obvious signs of fetal distress or an infection, thus preventing them from providing proper treatment. We will delve deep to find out if steps were missed, if tests were skipped, or if complications could have been prevented. We will use the facts that we gather to build a case designed to get you results.

Multimillion-Dollar Results in Birth Injury Cases

Over the years, our noteworthy cases have included many birth injury lawsuits. One record-breaking case involved a doctor who failed to diagnose an infant's spinal meningitis. The disease resulted in the development of learning disabilities. We obtained an award of $1.5 million for the family. At that time, this was the highest verdict ever awarded in that particular county.
