Birth Injuries


The birth of a baby is one of life’s greatest joys. That’s why nothing is more heartbreaking to parents than having their child born with a birth injury, especially when it is due to medical malpractice. Unfortunately, many of these babies may have significant and permanent health issues and require highly specialized care for the rest of their lives.

Birth injuries are wide-ranging and can occur at any stage of the baby’s early life. Some happen during pregnancy, while others occur during labor, and others still in the immediate post-birth period. Birth injury lawsuits arise when babies are injured by the careless and negligent acts or omissions of a doctor, nurse, hospital or other healthcare provider.

If your baby suffered an injury at birth, and you think it could have been avoided, don’t delay. Contact experienced central Illinois birth injury attorney James P. LeFante to discuss the possibility of filing a medical negligence or malpractice lawsuit against the health professional or institution where the birth took place. Financial compensation for a birth injury can give your child the very best medical care now and into the future.

  • Cerebral palsy and brain damage

  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Fetal death occurring before or during birth
