Your child’s birth should be a joyous occasion filled with excitement and happiness for the future. Unfortunately, birth injuries and fatalities are a tragic reality in the U.S., leaving many families grieving the harm to their children.

Between 2006 and 2014, neonatal birth trauma increased by 23%, resulting in scalp injuries, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, and seizures. The infant death rate increased by 2% between 2020 and 2021, with 743 fatalities in Illinois alone.

If you have recently suffered a birth injury or loss of an infant, working with a birth injury attorney can offer compassionate support and guidance. At Beam Legal Team, we walk you through the legal process of filing a claim against a negligent medical provider and get you the financial help you need to care for your family.

You Deserve Compassionate Legal Guidance

When your baby suffers an injury during delivery, it can have lasting consequences. Birth injuries like cerebral palsy can lead to lifelong disabilities, and damage like a brachial plexus injury can limit arm and hand movement. If your child’s injuries result in their passing, it can lead to immense emotional and financial strain.

If this happens to you, you need compassionate, knowledgeable legal support. As birth injury attorneys, our moral obligation is to provide experienced legal guidance to help you get through this challenging time.

You should expect the following treatment when seeking legal help after a birth injury:

  • Empathy and understanding of your situation
  • Clear explanation of your legal rights and options
  • Transparent communication about the legal process
  • Diligent pursuit of the compensation you deserve
  • Respect for your family’s needs and privacy
  • Specialized knowledge to challenge hospitals or providers
  • Strong advocacy to hold responsible parties accountable

Ensuring Your Settlement Reflects Your Losses

A compassionate attorney is vital to receiving a settlement reflecting your family’s losses. At Beam Legal Team, we work closely with you to learn about your long-term challenges and daily struggles. This enables us to negotiate a settlement that compensates you for the following types of damages:

  • Medical Expenses: We request a settlement that covers all medical costs related to the birth injury, including immediate and future care needs, ensuring your child receives the necessary treatments without financial burden.
  • Pain and Suffering: Recognition of your child’s physical discomfort and the emotional distress affecting your family. We seek compensation that reflects the severity of your collective experience.
  • Loss of Quality of Life: Our team is here to support you in securing compensation for the injury’s impact on your child’s and family’s enjoyment of everyday activities and ability to sustain meaningful relationships.
  • Special Care and Rehabilitation Costs: We ensure the settlement accounts for all necessary support, from therapy and special education to home modifications, helping your child to lead as fulfilling a life as possible.
  • Lost Earning Potential: We consult experts to understand how the injury might limit your child’s future earning abilities and fight to secure their financial well-being for life.
  • Wrongful Death: If a birth injury tragically leads to loss of life, the settlement we seek reflects not just the financial impact but the irreplaceable loss of love and companionship, honoring the depth of your family’s suffering.
