Birth Injury Attorneys
Serious Injuries Require Serious Representation
When a child suffers trauma during birth or pregnancy, their injuries could very easily be the result of a doctor’s failure to provide the accepted level of care. However, even when it is clear that the doctor is at fault, it does not mean that they won't aggressively challenge the accusation. In these situations, you will need the support of a powerful legal team that has the skills and resources to go up against not only the doctor, but the industry itself. This is what you will find from the Chicago birth injury lawyers at Beam Legal Team.
How Our Birth Injury Attorneys Can Help
The Chicago birth injury attorneys at Beam Legal Team can help provide you with the answers you need during this difficult legal battle. Any mistake by a physician during the birthing process can result in a tragic birth injury that devastates the lives of all involved.
Healthcare professionals have a moral and legal obligation to properly prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions. When they make a mistake, even those that are accidental, they can be held liable. When it comes to your baby injured at birth, having a powerful and caring legal team by your side is essential to the future of that child. We can help by thoroughly investigating your case, making a settlement demand, filing a lawsuit, and taking your case to court when need be.
If you have reason to believe that you or your child one has suffered undue injury or illness as a result of negligence on the part of a healthcare professional, it may be in your best interest to file a lawsuit with the assistance of our attorneys.
Depending on the scenario, we can hold the doctor, midwife, nurse, or hospital staff liable.
What is the Statute of Limitations for a Birth Injury Case in Illinois?
Most personal injury claims in Illinois must be filed within two years from the date that the accident occurred. The state of Illinois law understands, however, that a birth injury will not always be fully recognized until the child reaches school age. Parents, therefore, have 8 years from the date of the child’s birth to file a claim for damages. This statute of limitations is covered under 735 ILCS section 5/13-212(a).

Our daughter, Marissa deserved the same care and treatment as any other
child but when that didn't happen and the hospital where she was delivered
went into legal mode, all our questions went unanswered. "What happened?"
we asked, only to receive a response of "Not all babies are born
pink and rosy". BS... Thanks to Jack Beam and Matt Patterson, we
finally got answers and held the people responsible accountable. We wanted
the truth, "No stone left unturned." was our motto during trial
and they did exactly that! I can never thank them enough for what they
did for our daughter and for us, giving us piece of mind in knowing Marissa
will be taken care of for the rest of her life. God Bless you.
