Chicago Birth Injury Lawyers

At Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we have helped many families who have experienced devastating birth injuries. We are familiar with the overwhelming medical costs that can result from labor and delivery complications, surgical errors and the failure to monitor the baby and the mother.

If you feel that a doctor’s or nurse’s negligence played a role in a baby’s or mother’s childbirth injury, contact a law firm with significant experience in the area of medical malpractice and, specifically, birth injuries or obstetric malpractice.

Our Chicago law firm has represented injury victims since 1995. Our attorneys have a strong track record of successful settlements and verdicts in the area of medical malpractice, and many of these cases involved mistakes made by medical professionals during childbirth.

Delivery Room Error Attorneys

Some of the more common birth injuries we see involve C-section injuries, botched circumcision, brachial plexus injuries, also referred to as shoulder dystocia or Erb’s palsy, and brain injuries caused by hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), such as cerebral palsy. Birth injuries can also be the result of dangerous prescription drugs.

Below are brief summaries of some of the birth injury cases that we have resolved for past clients:

  • $18,000,000 settlement in a case involving the traumatic birth of a baby boy who was deprived of oxygen during labor and delivery that resulted in the baby being born with cerebral palsy of the spastic quadriplegic type
  • $2,756,411 record jury verdict in a case for a baby girl who suffered an injury to her middle finger following a Caesarian section delivery
  • $3,000,000 settlement for the traumatic birth of a baby due to the failure to perform a C-section delivery in a timely manner
  • $600,000 settlement involving resident physicians and a hospital for the death of an 11-day-old infant caused by negligence during the delivery

Our lawyers work with a wide network of medical, financial and life care planning experts to determine the full impact of a birth injury on a child and their family. We are devoted to obtaining maximum compensation through settlement or at trial.

During this difficult time, let us take care of the legal issues and fight to hold the negligent party responsible for the pain and suffering, and financial loss you have endured and may continue to deal with throughout your child’s life.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
