Ethical Chicago Birth Injury Attorneys Fight for Your Infant’s Rights

Helping parents navigate complex emotional matters

Few types of personal injury cases carry as much emotional weight or have as potentially long-term ramifications as those resulting from birth injuries. Not only are such cases brought by parents enduring the trials of an injured child, but such injuries usually require extensive long-term medical care for that child, placing further financial and emotional strain on everyone involved. If you feel that you have a valid birth injury case in the state of Illinois, you owe it to yourself to consult the experienced birth defect attorneys in Chicago at The Law Offices of Newman, Boyer & Statham, Ltd. today.

Common injuries suffered as a result of birth trauma

Birth trauma injuries can be caused in many ways. A doctor may not respond quickly enough to signs of distress. Even improper or inadequate care long before the birth itself can have devastating consequences. A Chicago birth injury lawyer handles cases involving many different types of injuries that occur during the birth process due to medical malpractice:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy and other forms of brachial plexus injury
  • Brain and spinal cord damage
  • Fractures
  • Infection
  • Hypoxia and oxygen deprivation
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Internal bleeding
  • Neonatal jaundice
  • Obstetric complications
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Preeclampsia
  • Rh-AB incompatibility
  • Uterine rupture

Supportive advocates when you need to consult cerebral and Erb’s palsy lawyers in Chicago

Cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy are two injuries with which Chicago birth defect attorneys are particularly familiar.

Cerebral palsy is a permanent form of brain damage that may result due to birth and delivery trauma. It impacts the child’s mental and sensory development as well as his or her muscular development, motor skills and other areas of growth. Its permanence, and the types of long-term care the injury requires, makes cerebral palsy an excruciating disorder for a family to endure, both in financial and emotional terms. If your child suffers from this condition as the result of medical malpractice, you should contact a Chicago cerebral palsy lawyer as soon as possible.


Erb's palsy involves paralysis of the shoulder, arm and hand. It typically occurs when the upper section of the main nerves of the arm suffer damage during birth. Our experienced Erb’s palsy attorneys in Chicago can explain this condition in greater detail and inform you of your legal options, such as a personal injury case.
