A Chicago birth injury lawyer can help get the compensation you deserve
For many expecting parents, bringing a child into the world is a joyous and momentous event. Unfortunately, malpractice in the delivery room can quickly turn this wonderful occasion into one of lifelong tragedy and hardship. Birth injuries are very common during childbirth and they often occur when a doctor, nurse, or medical professional deviates from standard medical procedure. It is the responsibility of medical professionals to follow strict regulations and to observe vital signs of a newborn during the birthing process in order to prevent potential danger and/or illness. When nurses and doctors fail to comply with this expected quality medical care, permanent birth injuries may result. Cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy, and umbilical cord compression are some of the most common types of birth injuries that take place during childbirth. Permanent birth injuries can be emotionally devastating and can create financial burden for the entire family. If you believe your child’s injuries are a result of a doctor’s medical negligence during childbirth, please call an experienced birth injury lawyer at The Horwitz Law Group: (312) 641-9200.
