Examples of Birth Injuries
As with all medical malpractice cases, the challenge in birth injury cases is proving the violation of a standard of care. Every birth injury is tragic, but not every tragedy qualifies as medical malpractice under Illinois law.
Still, birth injuries are frequently avoidable, and a medical professional's mistake during child birth can result in a serious injury.
Common examples of birth injuries we've handled include:
- Erb's palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Lack of oxygen to the child
- Brain damage
- Nerve damage
Child birth remains a difficult, dangerous affair, even in the 21st century. It must be handled carefully, and with all due caution. So many things can go wrong.
Sadly, birth injuries are not one-time events. Your child will likely be dealing with the effects of the birth injury for the rest of his or her life. There are medical expenses that will never end, and many of these injuries make it difficult to work and earn a living.
That's why the Sklare Law Group takes these cases so seriously. We understand that, in the aftermath of a birth injury, compensation is a necessity, not a luxury. As the victim of someone else's negligence, your child shouldn't have to pay the price.
