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.

Contact Beam Legal Team Today for a Free Consultation

At Beam Legal Team, we are committed to fighting for the best possible outcome on behalf of the injured child. The child’s quality of life and treatment options will be greatly affected by the settlement or verdict, which is why our mission is to pursue maximum compensation in every case that we represent. Over our years in practice, we have honed our skills and developed a network of respected medical analysts. Find out how this could benefit you by giving us a call today.

  • 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.
    In 2011, Beam Legal Team and Geoffrey Fieger won the largest obstetrical malpractice verdict in United States history.
