Legal Representation for Victims of Birth Injuries in Chicago and the Suburbs
The experience of giving birth should be one of the happiest moments of your life. But for those who’s infants suffer injury at birth, the experience can be both heartbreaking and devastating.
While most birth injuries happen at delivery, it is possible for an infant to experience injury during pregnancy and immediately following the delivery. Some of the most common birth injuries include the following:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Facial Paralysis
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
- Perinatal Asphyxia
- Bone Fractures
- Brachial Plexus Injuries (BPI)
If your child sustained an injury or died during delivery you may have a claim against the obstetrician, hospital or medical staff who was negligent, in treating you and your unborn child. These cases often result in lifelong injuries which can result in crushing financial and emotional hardship. Unlike other personal injury claims that usually have a two year time limit to bring a claim, the period to file a claim is longer for a minor.
If you suspect that your child suffered a birth injury, regardless of their age, you need to seek legal representation immediately. At Kavathas and Castanas, we can analyze your case and determine your best course of action to receive compensation. As part of our analysis, we require all relevant medical records be reviewed by a medical professional to determine if there was negligence.
