Birth Injuries The Lawyers You Need & Deserve

Chicago Birth Injury Attorneys

The birth process can be a delicate balancing act. The needs of the fetus must be constantly monitored and decisions on the care a mother and child receive must be made with great care as any error can impact either one. The child is exposed to a much higher degree of risk of injury in most situations. If any errors are committed during the delivery process, they can cause injuries that can impact that child’s life forever.

  • Cerebral Palsy – Trauma during labor and delivery can result in cerebral palsy and its permanently degraded level of physical control among other health issues that are linked to cerebral palsy.
  • Shoulder Dystocia – When the shoulders fail to deliver after the head, a number of medical issues can arise including nerve damage to the brachial plexus that leads to Erb’s palsy.
  • Erb’s Palsy – Symptoms of Erb’s palsy include paralysis of the arm due to nerve damage suffered during delivery.
  • Klumpke paralysis – Klumpke’s paralysis manifests itself through paralysis of the hand due to damage to the brachial plexus nerves during delivery.

In addition to these issues a fetus may be harmed through a variety of other mishaps including:

  • Pitocin administration – Pitocin/Oxytocin is used to induce labor or speed up a labor that is carrying on for too long. The administration of excessive Pitocin during the birth process can create serious, even fatal health issues such as brain damage and cerebral palsy if too much of the drug is delivered.
  • Failure to diagnose – A fetus may develop dangerous medical conditions that if gone undetected can worsen, causing serious injury. Timely medical care can make the difference between a safe and healthy child and a lifetime of medical issues.
