Chicago Birth Injury Attorney

A medical mistake during labor or delivery can alter a child’s life forever. Mistakes made by physicians and hospitals range from improper monitoring of health problems in the mother to improper fetal monitoring during labor and excessive pulling during vaginal birth. Such errors may leave a baby with permanent brain damage, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, or partial paralysis.

Chicago Birth Injuries Include:

Baby Brain Damage

Brain damage during birth can be caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain (or insufficient amount of oxygen delivered), a doctor’s failure to perform a timely C-section, failure to recognize and treat signs of fetal distress, failure to treat infections and various other errors. 

Shoulder Dystocia

Shoulder dystocia is a birth complication that occurs when the baby’s shoulder gets caught behind the mother’s pelvic bone during birth. This is an emergency, and it is the doctor’s responsibility to make sure that all measures are taken to ensure that no harm is done to mother and baby.

The medical expenses associated with caring for a child who has been hurt during birth as a result of medical negligence can easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is unlikely that a child with severe brain injuries will be able to work when he or she reaches adulthood. Providing a financially secure future for their child is a daunting task for the parents.

If you are the parent or guardian of a child that suffered an injury or possibly permanent brain damage during labor or delivery, you need a legal representative who will fight for your baby’s rights. Contact The Horwitz Law Group to get in touch with an experienced Chicago birth injury lawyer.
