Fighting For Justice Of Birth Injury Victims And Their Families
At Curcio Law Offices, we have significant experience prosecuting birth-related injuries. We understand that birth injury cases are medically, emotionally and financially taxing. We are committed to representing families dealing with the heartbreaking consequences of birth injuries. Our attorneys provide aggressive and compassionate legal representation to Chicagoland families dealing with the results of a birth injury.
Extensive Experience In Many Areas
Birth injury cases are complex and difficult to prove. Under Illinois law, medical providers cannot be held liable unless they deviated from the standard of care of the local medical community. Health care providers, hospitals and their insurance carriers often claim that birth-related injuries result from known complications related to the birthing process or were simply unavoidable, and therefore they cannot be held liable.
Our firm works closely with families, birth injury specialist and life care planners to determine the cause of birth injuries and the lasting effects those injuries will have on the child and the family. Some of the most common types of birth-related injuries involve:
- Erb’s Palsy
- Brachial plexus
- Shoulder dystocia
- Fetal brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Preterm labor Injuries
- Misdiagnosed or undiagnosed preeclampsia
Regardless of the type of birth injury, our attorneys have the experience to successfully pursue your case and ensure families can provide the best possible treatment for their child.
