Chicago Birth Injury Lawyers
At the Lloyd Law Group, Ltd., we have fought for the rights of medical malpractice victims, including children and parents with birth injury claims, for more than a quarter of a century.
We have worked hard to improve public safety, identifying and rooting out negligent or unsafe medical professionals. Because of our well-established reputation for effective counsel, as well as our willingness to take the difficult cases other firms reject, many of our medical malpractice claims come to us as referrals from other lawyers.
If you or your child have been injured during delivery, call 312-640-0204 or contact our office online today.
Our Experience Handling Birth Injury Claims
Our attorneys provide comprehensive advice and legal help to families of children who have suffered personal injury or death because of negligence by physicians, hospitals and nurses during pregnancy or labor and delivery. We also take claims on behalf of mothers needlessly injured during the birthing process.
We handle all types of birth injury cases, such as:
- Cerebral palsy or other brain damage caused by hypoxia or deprivation of oxygen during labor and delivery
- Erb’s palsy or paralysis caused by trauma during delivery
- Hemorrhage or trauma caused by forceps or vacuum delivery
- Spastic quadriplegia caused by missed diseases or infections during pregnancy
- Brain damage or paralysis caused by poor neonatal care
We also litigate claims for maternal injuries, such as infections, incontinence or preeclampsia.
Lloyd Law Group, Ltd. attorneys successfully argued an important birth injury claim all the way to the Illinois Supreme Court, changing the law in the process.
The firm represented the parents of a child who sued outside the then-imposed eight-year statute of limitations for birth injury cases. The court issued a ruling that now allows a birth injury claim to be filed anytime during the lifetime of the injured child.
