Birth Injury Attorney in Chicago
Has your child suffered a birth injury? You need a Birth Injury Attorney.
Any injury is difficult, but when the victim of a medical mistake is a newborn it is particularly tragic. The ramifications of these injuries are terrible for the child, but also emotionally and financially disastrous for the family. Though It is impossible to truly compensate someone for the lost opportunities caused by a birth injury, Balkin & Mausner desires to help the victims and families of birth injuries get some measure of financial compensation for their suffering. Let us help you secure your financial future so you can focus on your family.
Very few personal injury lawyers concentrate enough on birth injuries to truly understand the intricate and complex medical issues that go into these types of cases. An attorney must:
- Determine if the medical professionals used correct medical procedures during the birth
- Prove that the medical mistake was the direct cause of the birth injury.
For these and countless other reasons, it is vitally important that you hire a birth injury attorney with experience working similar cases to yours and a proven track record of success.
Few firms in the United States have handled as many birth injury cases as the Balkin & Mausner, and even fewer have had our level of success. Call an experienced birth injury attorney at Balkin & Mausner today for a free case evaluation.
What is a Birth Injury?
A “birth injury,” in a strictly medical sense, is any trauma or injury that happens to a baby just before, during, or immediately after it is born. The types of trauma are broad, and include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- C-Section Mistakes
- Brachial Plexus Injury/Erb’s Palsy
- Uterine Ruptures
- Error in Inducing Labor/ Pitocin Errors
- Preeclampsia & HELLP Syndrome
- Pediatric Negligence
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Pediatric Wrongful Death
- And many other injuries.
Aside from the medical issues, birth injuries are incredibly taxing both emotionally and financially on the families of the victims. Birth injuries are one of the most emotionally charged parts of personal injury law because the actions of others have robbed the innocent victim of the opportunity to ever experience a normal life.
Your birth injury attorney must understand both sides of birth injury, the intricate medical details and the delicate emotional situation. Only by presenting an accurate depiction of both the medical and emotional situation of the victim and their family to the jury, can a birth injury attorney get the results the client deserves.
