Professional Naperville Birth Injury Lawyer

Giving birth is supposed to be one of the most treasured moments in life, and is definitely the most anticipated day for soon-to-be parents. Unfortunately, there are times when the unimaginable happens, and instead of celebrating bringing a new life into the world, you’re left devastated by your baby suffering a birth injury.

Your baby deserves the absolute best medical care, yet medical negligence from doctors and other medical professionals is far too common, leading to birth injuries and wrongful death.

If your baby suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a medical professional, contact our birth injury attorney in Naperville ASAP. Shea Law Group provides free consultations and your legal representation will cost you nothing unless we win your case and earn you compensation for your birth injury case.

Common Types of Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur during your pregnancy, labor and delivery, or after the baby is born. There are many different types of birth injuries, however the most common fall under the anoxic/hypoxic injuries (brain injury) or physical trauma.

Other common forms of birth injury include

  • Brachial Plexus Palsy
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Nerve Paralysis
  • Collarbone/Clavicle Fracture
  • Caput Succedaneum

Most injuries are noticeable right away, but others may take time to present themselves in the child. No matter the timeframe of when you first recognize the injury, please contact the law office of Shea Law Group immediately. Our law firm specializes in this area of law and is equipped to handle your case so you can spend your time with your child.

What Should You Do if Your Child is Injured?

If you believe your child suffered an injury due to medical malpractice or negligence of a medical professional or hospital staff, your first step should be to contact an attorney with birth injury experience.

Another important step in the process is to begin collecting documentation. Every piece of information is important when investigating a birth injury. Our lawyers in Dupage County and Cook County are prepared to help you deal with hospital staff when it comes to finding records and obtaining proper documentation.

The more information we have about your case, the better representation we can provide. Names of healthcare providers and facilities, dates of procedures and checkups, any prescription medication that was taken before delivery and after, and all other pertinent information.

No matter the cause of the injury, our Naperville-based trial lawyer is skilled and knowledgeable in the practice area of birth injuries. Contact us today so we can start fighting for your child.
