DuPage County Birth Injury Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Serving Northern Illinois
When a child is born, there is joy, hope, and expectation of a bright future. When a birth injury occurs, however, this joy can quickly be replaced by fear, loss, and uncertainty. Injuries to newborns can leave the child with a lifetime of physical challenges and the parents with large emotional and financial burdens. If you have a child that was injured due to doctor malpractice or hospital malpractice, it is important to speak with an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible.

Common Birth Injuries in Illinois
We provide skilled representation for all types of birth injuries, including:
- Cerebral Palsy and other brain injuries;
- Shoulder dystocia;
- Erb’s Palsy;
- Brachial Plexus;
- Klumpke’s Palsy;
- Birth Hypoxia (oxygen deprivation); and
- Wrongful death due to a fetal injury.
Birth injuries are often caused by errors during the labor and delivery process. For example, medical professionals sometimes fail to respond in a timely manner to address complications such as bleeding, umbilical cord entanglement and other forms of fetal distress. Other common mistakes include delays in ordering a Caesarean section, misuse of vacuum extractors and poor communication between the attending nurses and doctors.
Illinois has a two year statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases, so if you suspect carelessness or negligence on the part of a medical professional, it is important to take action right away. Birth injuries often incur high medical bills both immediately and well into the future. If malpractice occurred, you deserve to be compensated for ongoing medical costs as well as the pain and suffering you experienced because of the injuries to your child.
