Detecting a Birth Injury in a Chicago Case

Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable

Woman in Pain While Pregnant

The detection of a preventable birth injury is not always easy. Certainly, as a parent, you may have observed something is wrong. Your baby may not react like other babies; he or she may have muscle tone that is loose or floppy or your child may exhibit a lack of coordination. Certainly, detecting a birth injury should not be done by a parent on their own. If you as a parent have reason to believe that your child is the victim of a birth injury, it is important to speak with an experienced physician who can properly diagnose the child.

There may be bruising or other indicators that cause you to suspect something is not right. If you have observed any abnormalities, and you still have questions despite your doctor's explanation, speak with a birth injury lawyer at Beam Legal Team immediately.

What are the Indicators of Birth Injuries?

  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Poor coordination
  • Bruising and / or excessive molding of your child's head or scalp
  • Extreme lethargy
  • Extended stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
  • Skin discoloration
  • Mental retardation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Diagnosis of hypoxic-ischemic injury or neonatal encephalopathy

This is by no means a complete list of all the indicators of a birth injury. Following delivery, a mother can also have indicators of a possible birth injury. You should discuss the indicators that you have observed and what you have been told by your doctor with our professionals. Our team of Chicago lawyers has represented children throughout the nation. We are located in Chicago, IL, and have more than 30 years of experience in recognizing the indicators of a preventable birth injury.

  • Beam Legal Team, LLC 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 peace of mind in knowing Marissa will be taken care of for the rest of her life. God Bless you.
