Birth Injuries

Of all medical malpractice incidents and personal injuries, none are more traumatic to parents than injuries suffered by their children. If your child has been hurt during the birthing process as a result of negligence on the part of the medical professionals involved, it is important to work with a law firm with the experience needed to handle your case and a reputation for successful medical malpractice litigation.

At The Law Offices of Goldfine & Bowles, P.C., we represent families in Peoria, Bloomington and Galesburg who have been victimized by medical malpractice during birth. Our lawyers understand the challenges our clients are facing after birth injuries—we will handle your case with compassion and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys represent clients in birth trauma cases involving:

  • Brain injuries and developmental disability: Mental retardation, cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities can often be traced back to errors in the birthing procedure or post-natal care.
  • Erb's palsy: Excessive trauma to the upper part of a child's arm or arms in the birthing process can result in paralysis to the arms, called Erb's palsy.
  • Umbilical cord compression: When the umbilical cord is pinched during pregnancy or birth, it can result in serious complications for the child.
  • Wrongful death: Problems with cesarean surgery or other birthing procedures can lead to the wrongful death of the mother or child.

These are just a few of the birth injuries our lawyers handle. If you or your child has been injured in any way during pregnancy, birth or the period immediately following birth as a result of medical negligence, discuss your case with an attorney from our firm.
