Springfield Birth Injury Attorney
Birth injuries are emotionally traumatic for parents and can cause enduring hardships for children. In addition, birth injures can result in millions of dollars in immediate and ongoing medical expenses. At Kanoski Bresney, our Springfield medical malpractice lawyers have decades of experience helping families seek financial compensation for birth injuries. We have offices in Bloomington, Champaign, Decatur, Macomb, Pekin, Quincy, Rushville, and Springfield to serve clients throughout the region.
What are Common Types of Birth Injuries?
As with all medical malpractice cases, birth injury cases are complicated. There are many medical conditions that can lead to fetal distress, and ultimately to birth injuries. Failure to diagnose pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes, failure to properly position a baby for delivery, failure to properly deliver the child, and failure to properly monitor a child’s vitals can create circumstances ripe for a variety of birth injuries:
- Cerebral palsy
- Hypoxic or Anoxic injuries
- Abrupted placenta
- Erb’s palsy
- Complicated or delayed C-section
- Brachial plexus injury
- Shoulder dystocia
How much is my case worth?
Generally, if the liability issue (who was at fault) is clear, we will be able to provide you with a range of estimated value. Based upon our extensive experience with personal injury cases, we base a case’s value on:
- past and future medical expenses
- lost wages
- loss of your future earning capacity
- pain and suffering
- wrongful death
In addition to the risks faced by the child, improper medical treatment during the birthing process can present significant risks to the mother. Our Springfield birth injury attorneys routinely work with a number of medical experts to determine the cause and long-term effects of birth injuries. While we recognize that no amount of money can compensate for an injury to a child, we are dedicated to helping ensure that our clients get the respect, response, and resources they need to take care of the financial responsibilities that result from birth injuries.
