Was Medical Negligence the Cause of Your Child’s Birth Injury?

Free Injury Legal Consultation. No Fee Until We Win. We’ll Even Come To You.

Results Matter

A great amount of trust is placed in the doctor and medical staff when parents enter a hospital to give birth to their baby.

birth injury law firm

This trust includes knowing the correct standards of medical care will be followed and the mother and unborn child will have the full attention of the staff to ensure a healthy delivery. Any mistake made during pregnancy, labor and delivery, and immediately following may cause life-altering consequences to the newborn, including cerebral palsy (CP). CP causes irreversible injury to the brain, which in many cases could have been prevented had proper care been given. If your child has been diagnosed with CP after birth, consult a Chicago cerebral palsy attorney from Willens Injury Law Offices. There are a number of negligent factors that could have caused this birth defect including medical negligence.

Birth Injuries from Medical Negligence

If your child has suffered a birth injury, how do you know whether it was due to medical negligence?

It can be hard to determine the cause, and the staff at the hospital are not always eager to share the information you need to know.

Minor Birth Injuries

Not all birth injuries are serious. Some minor birth injuries will pass on their own without little or no treatment, and leave little, if any, permanent effect. Some examples include:

  • Subdural or cerebral hemorrhage
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Clavicle fracture
  • Caput succedaneum

Although your baby’s risk of these types of injuries can be increased by the delivery techniques used and may be attributable to medical negligence, their transitory nature means they do not usually merit a medical negligence lawsuit.

Moderate Birth Injuries

Some birth injuries cause lasting damage, and can be caused by a failure to live up to the professional standards of care. These include:

In general, facial nerve injury and brachial plexus injury are more likely to be associated with medical negligence. Improper handling of a difficult birth, overuse or improper use of extraction tools or failure to recommend a cesarean section for an at-risk birth may increase the risk of injury. Although it used to be thought that 90% of infants with brachial plexus injury recovered fully without treatment, it is now believed that up to 30% of infants with brachial plexus injury will suffer residual effects.

Serious Birth Injuries

Some birth injuries almost always result in lifelong effects that may reduce your child’s ability to live a healthy, normal life and may require long-term ongoing care. These include:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Cerebral palsy

These can both be caused by medical negligence. Spinal cord injury can result from inappropriate handling of the baby during delivery. Cerebral palsy can be caused by a lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain during a difficult or prolonged delivery. The impact of these injuries is tremendous. Studies indicate cerebral palsy effectively doubles your child’s medical care expenses and may result in a lifetime cost of about $1 million.

Medication Errors Leading to Birth Injuries

The most dangerous time for medication errors is during the first trimester of pregnancy, but can occur at any time.

Types of Medication Errors Leading to Birth Injuries

There are many potential errors that can cause birth injuries. These include:

  • Continuation of prescription during pregnancy that has fetal risk
  • Administration of prescription with fetal risk during pregnancy
  • Administration of prescription that interferes with nutrient uptake during pregnancy
  • Failure to administer necessary prescription
  • Overdose or underdose of prescription

Although relatively rare, these medication errors are potentially very serious.

Effects of Medication Errors

Medication errors can lead to serious consequences for the mother or child, including:

  • Birth defects, including heart defects, brain defects, and more
  • Premature birth
  • Fetal distress requiring intervention
  • Loss of pregnancy

In all these cases, additional care and expense is required for the child and often for the mother. In many cases, the effects are long-term or permanent.

Medication errors are too common in the US, but they are preventable. If you or your child has been the victim of a preventable medication error, you should not have to bear the costs associated with that error. At Willens Injury Law Offices, we have helped many parents get compensation after medication errors. We want to help you.

Birth Injury Caused by Failure to Administer Antibiotics

If the doctor fails to identify infection in time and does not administer the right antibiotics at the right time, it can put the life of both the mother and the unborn child in danger.

For expecting parents, the birth of their child is a joyous occasion. However, the path to motherhood often involves risks which, if not managed well, can cause injury to mother and the child. As the mother’s body undergoes several changes during pregnancy, her immune system also changes to protect both her and her unborn child from illness. During this process, some parts of the immune system are suppressed, while others are enhanced. This can put the pregnant mother at a higher risk of bacterial infections. According to our Chicago birth injury lawyers, the death rate of viral and bacterial infections is higher in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant women. It is therefore extremely important that the pregnant woman is monitored for any infection throughout pregnancy and particularly delivery.

If the doctor fails to identify the infection in time, and does not administer the right antibiotics at the right time, it can put the life of both the mother and the unborn child in danger. Failure to administer antibiotics can amount to medical negligence. Affected families can pursue a claim against the at-fault doctor.

Common Infections Requiring Antibiotics

It is the duty of the treating doctor to identify infection in a pregnant woman, and administer antibiotics promptly as necessary. Some of the infections that require antibiotic treatment include:

  • Group B Strep: It is the most common cause of meningitis and septicemia among newborns. The bacteria may be found in digestive tracts or female genital tracts, and it may get transmitted to the baby as it passes through the birth canal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), any pregnant woman who has had a baby with Group B strep in the past, tests positive for Group B strep during pregnancy, or has a current urinary tract infection caused by Group B strep should be give intravenous antibiotics during labor. If left untreated, it can cause life threatening birth injuries to the child, and may even cause death of the mother.
  • Chorioamnionitis: This condition affects the membranes that surround the fetus and the amniotic fluid. If left untreated, it can cause meningitis, respiratory illnesses, brain damage or sepsis, and it may necessitate preterm delivery.
  • Trichomoniasis: This is a sexually transmitted parasite that causes inflammation of the cervix. The condition is easily treatable with antibiotics, however, if left untreated, it can cause bleeding, preterm labor and low birth weight.
  • Villitis: This is a complication resulting from untreated Group B strep, which causes the placenta to become inflamed. If the underlying strep infection is not treated, villitis can cause placental deterioration and eventually lead to fetal death.

Can Underestimating Birth Weight Lead to Birth Injuries?

A recent study by the Journal of Perinatology has suggested that medical providers often underestimate the birth weight of the babies to be delivered by a mother’s second or subsequent vaginal delivery. This can give a false sense of security in the delivery room, and greatly increase the risk of brachial plexus injury to the baby. Our Chicago birth injury lawyer explains what brachial plexus injury is and how underestimation of weight can increase the chances of this injury.

Study shows doctors often underestimate the infant weight

A recent study conducted to determine whether the risk of a brachial plexus injury was higher in a first time vaginal delivery or in subsequent vaginal births has concluded that although the risk of this type of injury is not higher in subsequent births, an underestimation of the birth weight of the subsequent naturally delivered babies may result in doctors failing to identify the risk of brachial plexus injury. They may neglect to take remedial or preventive measure in time to prevent such an injury. The researchers urged the doctors not to assume that the prior vaginal delivery will reduce the risk of brachial plexus injury. They should make efforts to correctly predict the birth weight of the infant, and take necessary actions accordingly.

Complications From Epidural Errors

If a mother experiences any of these events during childbirth, the unborn child may be in serious danger. These medical emergencies during childbirth can cut off the baby’s oxygen supply. Lack of oxygen during childbirth can cause severe injuries to the unborn child. If the child is deprived of oxygen inside the mother’s womb, brain damage can take place leading to a number of complications.

Undiagnosed Complications Can Lead to Birth Injuries

While the birth of a baby is one of the most joyous moments in the lives of parents, for some these emotions quickly turn into despair if the baby suffers a birth injury. Birth injuries are not all that common, but they do occur. Undiagnosed pregnancy complications can greatly increase the risk of a birth injury. In this post, we will discuss some of the serious complications that can increase the risk of birth injuries.

Serious complications that can result in birth injuries

Many types of risks and complications can occur during pregnancy, which can lead to an increased risk of injuries at the time of labor or delivery. It is possible to diagnose these complications during pregnancy, and if they are diagnosed and treated in time, they do not create any problems during childbirth. Some of the common pregnancy complications include:

  • Improperly Positioned Baby
  • Anemia
  • Diabetes
  • Preeclampsia

Treating these complications during pregnancy

Normally, a pregnancy progresses as it should, and the expecting mother is able to progress to a normal labor and delivery. To ensure a problem free pregnancy and delivery, the pregnant woman should have regular prenatal doctor checkups to make sure there are no complications. If her doctor notices a medical condition, they can take the necessary precautions in time to help prevent further complications. Even if you think your pregnancy is progressing normally, you should keep up with regular doctor appointments.

Preventing birth injuries

Birth injuries can occur at the time of labor or delivery, and these injuries normally happen when there is a serious complication or medical problem at the time of birth. It is important to properly diagnose conditions during pregnancy to reduce the risk of problems during childbirth. If a doctor diagnoses a problem, they should monitor the pregnant woman closely and provide appropriate treatment.

The doctor will also need to determine whether any special requirements are necessary during delivery. For example, if the baby is too large, normal delivery may be difficult. Any possible injuries can be prevented by performing a C-section.

Undiagnosed Complications and birth injuries

When the doctor fails to diagnose a complication and is not prepare to manage it, the chances of a birth injury occurring may become very high. For example, a baby who is too large or is not positioned properly cannot be delivered vaginally. The prolonged delay can cause the baby to become distressed. It is therefore important for the doctor to evaluate the baby’s weight and position before the baby goes into labor. In some cases, it may be possible to turn the baby before the woman goes into labor. If this does not happen, the woman may require a C-section.

Medical Negligence Resulting in Cerebral Palsy

  •  A delayed cesarian section after the mother struggled for hours attempting a vaginal delivery, causing the baby to go into distress.
  • Not being admitted to the hospital at the onset of labor, even though signs of distress such as bleeding were evident.
  • The mother was allowed to labor for too long, causing the unborn child to lose oxygen from a low amount of amniotic fluid.
  • Failure of the delivering doctor to note that the umbilical cord was wrapped around the neck, restricting blood flow to the brain.
  • Unsuccessful attempts to induce labor, allowing the baby to go into distress from oxygen deprivation.
  • Failure of the delivering doctor to arrive in time, allowing the unborn child to spend an extended amount of time in the birth canal.
  • Failure to note that the amniotic sac had ruptured.
  • The unnecessary use of forceps or a vacuum extractor, causing injury to the brain.
  • Failure to monitor the heartbeat of the baby during labor and delivery and identify signs that the baby had gone into fetal distress.
  • Insufficient pre-natal care when there were clear signs of a high risk pregnancy.
  • Excessive force used by the delivering doctor to remove the baby from the birth canal.
  • The baby’s shoulder became stuck on the pubic bone during delivery and the delivering doctor did not react appropriately.
  • Failure of the doctor to note signs of a high risk delivery, such as a high birth weight, which could cause the baby to become stuck in the birth canal.
  • The baby suffered a trauma to the head during or immediately after delivery, causing damage leading to cerebral palsy.

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!

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!

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 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.
