Many injuries to babies are the result of a disruption of oxygen to the brain. Children who have suffered oxygen loss have conditions such as Erbs palsy, cerebral palsy, and other more serious conditions. Some of these children will never be able to care for themselves. We help families obtain the resources needed to care for the child for as long as necessary.
The Deratany Firm helps parents obtain the resources they will need to care for a child injured at birth
This type of birth injury can be the result of many acts of negligence or misconduct on the part of the obstetrician, nurse, or hospital. We have seen significant birth injuries caused by:
- Failure to perform a C-section in a timely way
- Failure to monitor
- Misuse of anesthesia during labor and delivery
- Misuse of vacuum extractor or forceps
- Failure to use manipulation techniques when baby is stuck in birth canal
These and other instances of negligence and misconduct cause injuries to infants, often leaving them disabled for life. At our Chicago, Illinois Personal Injury law firm, we have the resources and knowledge to help parents get the compensation they need to give their child as full a life as possible. We employ medical specialists and other experts to build a strong case for compensation that can address, in part, the many problems the child will experience.
