Chicago Medical Malpractice Attorney Seeking Justice and Compensation for Birth Injury Victims

The day your child is born should be one of the most joyful days of your life, not one marred by tragedy. You’re putting the life of your unborn child in the hands of your physician and the team of medical professionals assisting them, trusting that they will dedicate their full attention to the task of bringing your child into the world. When this trust is breached by doctors failing to adhere to good medical practices, or by hospitals committing grave communication errors, the lives of both infants and mothers may be imperiled.

Childbirth can go wrong in a moment

Babies are born every day, and many births occur without incident. Unfortunately, not every birth is simple. Doctors working in obstetrics must be highly attentive during the birthing process for any signs of distress on behalf of either the mother or infant. When doctors miss early cues indicating that there are complications, this lost time may have a serious negative impact on the survival prospects of the mother or child. Common childbirth injuries that can result from physician negligence include:

  • Scarring
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Broken limbs
  • Hemorrhaging by the mother
  • Fetal lacerations suffered during a caesarian

Physicians must uphold a legal duty to their patients

When physicians and other hospital personnel fail to uphold the prevailing standard of care for a woman giving birth, and that failure results in injury to the mother or child, that physician or staff member may be held liable for their negligent care. This means that physicians must stay current on recognized good practices in their field and make thoughtful decisions about the best course of action for each individual patient based on their knowledge of current research. A failure to do so can have a critical impact on their patients.
