Is there a Cap on Birth Injury Lawsuit Settlements in Illinois?

If you suspect that a birth injury resulted from a medical practitioner's negligence or carelessness, you may consider pursuing a lawsuit against the person or facility responsible. Birth injury litigation falls into the category of medical malpractice, which allows plaintiffs to hold one or more negligent professionals accountable for their role in an undue injury or other avoidable condition.

When Does A Birth Injury Result From Medical Malpractice?

Many different factors contribute to birth injuries, including unexpected complications during labor. Often, however, severe birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice by a physician or other health care practitioner.


Some of the saddest cases we handle involve injuries suffered by innocent newborn babies. Some experience injury immediately or shortly after birth, while others are injured while still in the womb. Many of these conditions are permanent and debilitating, requiring long-term, expensive care. What's worse is that many of these birth injuries could have been avoided, had the medical personnel in charge of the mother's care or delivery of her baby done their jobs properly. 


Coming to the realization that you or someone you love may have suffered unnecessarily due to medical mistakes or negligence is a jarring experience. We have come to put so much trust in medical professionals that the idea that they make mistakes can be somewhat difficult to comprehend. Although it is important to remember that a bad or unexpected result to a medical procedure is not always indicative of malpractice, it is crucial to act carefully to preserve your rights when the unexpected does occur.
