Oppenheimer Firm

Chicago’s Nationally Recognized Civil Rights And Criminal Defense Firm

Compassionate Advocacy For Birth Injury Cases

There are few moments in life as exciting as bringing a child into the world, but when a medical error causes you or your child to suffer harm during the birthing process, the results can darken what should have been a joyous day. The impacts of a birth injury can follow a child for the rest of their life, and the liable party should be responsible for their actions.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, we approach each birth injury case with the care and compassion our clients need in such a delicate time. We are committed to helping parents seek justice against the reckless or negligent medical professionals who have caused so much damage to their families.

Understanding Birth Injuries And Your Rights

Because of an infant’s vulnerability during the birthing process, any number of factors can lead to a birth injury. Common preventable causes include failure to monitor fetal distress, improper use of delivery tools like forceps or vacuum extractors, or a delay in performing a necessary cesarean section. It is also possible that a doctor or nurse assisting in the birthing process failed to perform their duties along the way.

These mistakes can cause a newborn and their mother to suffer long-term or permanent injuries, including nerve damage, paralysis, scarring or burns, brain damage, broken bones and even death for the mother or child.

No matter the cause or consequences of your birth injury, we will be by your side to stand up to medical professionals and seek justice for you and your loved one. You deserve a lawyer who will do everything in their power to pursue the optimal outcome in a medical malpractice claim, and at The Oppenheimer Firm, you can find one.
