 Need an Experienced Birth Injury Attorney?

When these injuries are a result of incompetent medical professionals or sheer negligence, it just makes sense to speak with one of our experienced medical malpractice lawyers.


One of the happiest and most rewarding days of a parent’s life is the birth of their child. If the birth results in injuries or even the loss of life, however, this picture-perfect day can quickly turn into a nightmare. Studies show that for every 1,000 babies born in the United States, approximately six to eight of them will be injured at birth.

While being surrounded by a medical team of obstetricians, neonatologists, and nurse practitioners may put expecting parents at ease, it does not change the fact that countless issues could occur right up to the moment that a baby is born. Unfortunately, even the most knowledgeable and experienced medical professionals can make mistakes. When a baby is harmed or suffers injuries due to any action or oversight made by a medical professional at any point of a pregnancy, birth, or the infant’s care after birth, this harm may be classified as a birth injury.

The process of pregnancy and giving birth can be extremely challenging, particularly since there are numerous things that can go wrong. Sometimes, a baby is born with a life-altering condition that health providers had nothing to do with. Other times, however, a birth injury may result from a poor decision made by a health care provider during delivery. Often, birth injuries cause mental or physical life-long disabilities, and can greatly affect the families who must care for the child. This is why families should consult with an experienced Chicago birth injury lawyer to get the help they need.

Your professionalism, persistence and continued support let me and my family get through this very difficult time.

Birth Injuries vs. Birth Defects

Chicago Umbilical Cord StrangulationBirth injuries are injuries that cause harm to either the mother or the child before, during, or after delivery. The severity and consequences of such injuries may vary from mild to severe and may be either temporary or permanent in nature. Some birth injuries may even result in wrongful death. A number of birth injuries result from the carelessness or negligence of a healthcare provider.

Birth injuries often arise out of difficult circumstances, such as the improper use of forceps or any other extraction device, or an umbilical cord strangling the baby and cutting off its oxygen supply.

Birth defects, on the other hand, may be defined as abnormalities in the function, structure, or metabolism that are present at birth. Such abnormalities may result in physical or mental disabilities, and may sometimes be fatal. Birth defects are generally caused by environmental or genetic factors, or sometimes a combination of both. Most birth defects are not caused by negligence and cannot be prevented. Common birth defects include cleft lips, spina bifida, congenital heart problems, and Down syndrome.

Diagnosing Birth Injuries

In almost all cases, families are not aware of birth injuries until after the baby’s birth. This is because birth injuries typically occur slightly before, during, or after delivery.

A number of birth injuries show instant physical symptoms. Hypoxia, for instance, causes a newborn to appear slightly blue because he or she is not receiving enough oxygen. Medical staff should act immediately to prevent brain damage or death.

Other birth injuries do not present themselves until the child grows older, and is more intellectually developed and mobile.

Types of Birth Injuries

Injuries sustained by a baby during labor and delivery can involve parts of the body such as the brain. The severity and consequences of such injuries may vary from mild to severe and may be either temporary or permanent in nature. Some birth injuries may even result in wrongful death.

New parents may find it difficult to identify when a birth injury stems from the negligence of hospital staff. As such, it is important that new parents educate themselves of the more common birth injuries caused by negligence. Common examples of birth injuries that we handle at Willens Injury Law Offices include:

Erbs Palsy
Cerebral Palsy
Cephalohematoma
Kernicterus due to untreated jaundice
Spasticity
Meconium aspiration
Facial paralysis
Forceps injuries
Bone fractures
Cranial nerve trauma

Clavicle fractures

Brain damage

Spinal cord injuries

Gestational diabetes

Excessive bleeding

Hypoxia

Soft tissue injuries

Placenta previa

Wrongful death of baby

Wrongful death of mother

The majority of these situations arise when a doctor fails to properly respond to or assess complications and conditions during a woman’s pregnancy or delivery, or when a woman takes a prescription drug during her pregnancy that harms the baby.

Common Causes of Birth Injuries

A medical professional’s failure to diagnose a condition, respond correctly to a condition, or pay attention leading up to and all through the birthing process can result in newborn suffering debilitating injuries.

Common Causes of Birth Trauma and Birth Injury Are:

  • Pre- or post-mature delivery resulting from improper dating
  • Miscalculating the size of the fetus
  • Medical problems and infections in the fetus
  • Medical problems and infections in the mother
  • Improperly administering medications during pregnancy or delivery
  • Failing to perform a timely C-section
  • Failing to give newborns oxygen when needed
  • Rh incompatibility
  • Abnormal presentation, including shoulder dystocia
  • Using delivery instruments improperly

Negligence is typically at the heart of preventable birth injuries.

Compensation for Birth Injuries

Chicago Birth Injuries Caused by Maternal ShockCoping with the expenses of a birth-related injury can be devastating. After all, almost all birth injuries are irreversible in nature and can affect the victim for a lifetime. Birth injuries may mean increased medical expenses for special equipment, special care, and rehabilitation for your child. Of course, caring for a child with specialized needs may also be physically and emotionally draining on the child’s family members as well. This tremendous burden is not one that you should have to carry alone.

All too often, parents of children who sustained birth injuries are uninformed and unaware that they and their child may potentially be entitled to substantial financial compensation. These families can benefit greatly from an experienced birth injury attorney in Chicago. At Willens Injury Law Offices, our legal team can educate these families on their legal options and rights.

A successful medical malpractice lawsuit entitles the victim and the victim’s loved ones to recover damages for past, present, and future expenses. These include the potential lifetime expenses associated with caring for a child with special needs, such as therapy, physical rehabilitation, counseling, medical equipment, home and transportation modifications, and round-the-clock care. Receiving compensation for disability, pain, and suffering, emotional stress, loss of income, and loss of companionship are some of the other damages you are entitled to restitution for.

Physicians and other medical professionals are expected to have the training, knowledge, and experience to handle any birth complications that arise. You and your loved ones should not have to bear the cost of injuries due to the mistake of your healthcare provider. If your healthcare provider causes damage, they should be held accountable for their actions.

What to Do If You Encounter Birth Injury Malpractice

Neonatal Herpes Simplex VirusIf you have reason to believe that your child may have suffered birth trauma or birth injury, it is important that you seek medical attention for your child as soon as possible. Obtaining proper treatment in a timely manner will increase the chances of your child surviving with as little damage as possible given the circumstances. Be sure to obtain a copy of all your child’s medical records and keep a detailed account of all birth injury-related expenses.

It is also vital to speak with a knowledgeable Chicago birth injury attorney as soon as possible—especially if your child’s injuries are extensive. Apart from meeting the statute of limitations in your state, filing a claim in a timely manner is crucial to your case as evidence may disappear with the passage of time. Witnesses may relocate, records could be altered, and any memories surrounding the case facts may fade. By acting quickly, you maximize your chances of obtaining the financial compensation you rightfully deserve to support your child with special needs.

Statute of Limitations for Birth Injuries

Chicago car wreck victim dialing phoneA statute of limitations refers to the total length of time that an individual is given to file a claim. if the statute of limitations expires, then the individual loses the right to file a lawsuit.

Generally, medical malpractice lawsuits in Illinois must commence within two years from the date of the alleged incident or the date that the injured individual reasonably should have discovered the injury. The maximum amount of time allowed to file is four years from the occurrence of the negligent act, regardless of when a patient discovers the injury.

For birth injuries, the state of Illinois has numerous exceptions. For situations involving a child who was harmed during labor and delivery yet did not suffer permanent disability, the statute of limitations is eight years from the date of the alleged incident. The victim, however, must file the lawsuit before he or she turns 22 years old.

chicago-birth-injury-horner-syndomeIf a child suffers a birth injury-related disability, then the statute of limitations is paused until two years from the time the disability has ended. If a child has a brain injury or suffers from cerebral palsy stemming from their birth, then they may opt to pursue a case at any point in their lifetime.

If a medical care provider is found purposely withholding information in order to conceal an error, then the statute of limitations extends five years from the date the patient’s injury is discovered.

According to Illinois law, the statute of limitations for wrongful infant death is two years from the date of the child’s death.

Developing a medical malpractice claim such as a birth injury can be time-consuming, as a birth injury lawyer in Chicago must first obtain and review all medical records associated with the case, including prenatal care records. An attorney may also require independent examinations of the injured child. As such, it is best to begin work on the case with sufficient time before the statute of limitations expires.

How Parents Can Prevent Birth Injuries

chicago birth injury lawyer complicationsAs parents, you cannot control any misdiagnosis or errors on the part of your physician. You may, however, take proactive steps in preventing birth injuries from happening to your child. One of the most important steps you can take is to choose a doctor carefully.  Thoroughly look into a potential doctor’s experience, philosophies, and any other issues that may concern you. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor questions.It may help to ask for references from previous patients.

chicago-brain-injury-pediatricAlso, ensure that another person is with you in the labor or delivery room, as you are most likely going to be nervous and stressed out. Having your spouse, friend, or any other trusted loved one present can ensure that someone will advocate on your behalf and on behalf of the baby if you are unable to communicate properly with the medical staff.

Having a baby can be both an exciting and stressful time for parents. By following these simple steps, you can feel more confident knowing that you did your homework and that you are making the right decisions for your baby.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

I’m rarely compelled to leave a review for anyone but I felt I needed to show my gratitude.From the first time I spoke with Matt Willens on the phone I actually felt like he was there for me, looking after my best interests and not his own. That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

After I was injured, and after researching Chicago's best law firms, I found Willens Law and read their reviews. After meeting Matt, I retained their services, along with the special efforts of his Partner, David Baez.They handled my case in a professional, efficient manner, while keeping me regularly informed. We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
