Failure to Perform a C-Section in Cook County

Experienced Birth Injury Lawyers in Illinois

A baby's health must be monitored closely during the process of labor and delivery. Often, hospitals use fetal monitoring strips to monitor the baby's heart rate, which provides critical information about how the child is handling the delivery. If signs of fetal distress arise, obstetricians must act quickly to deliver the child, usually via cesarean section.

As one of Chicago's most successful personal injury law firms, Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman seeks to hold negligent medical professionals accountable for the damage they cause to families. For more than 40 years, our Chicago birth injury attorneys have handled cases involving injuries to children, including situations where babies were severely harmed by a doctor's delay in performing a C-section, or outright failure to perform the procedure. We understand the complex nature of these cases, both emotionally and legally, and we will do everything in our power to obtain compensation and some sense of justice for you.

Representation for Injured Children and Mothers in Illinois

A doctor's failure to perform a C-section or any delay in performing one endangers both the child and the mother. Our Cook County medical malpractice lawyers represent children and mothers who have suffered many types of injuries related to the failure to perform cesarean sections and improperly performed C-sections, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Fetal asphyxia
  • Brain damage
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Uterine rupture

Like all birth injury legal claims, those based on failure to perform a C-section are highly complex. Success demands a well-though-out plan that considers the case from all angles. Here at Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, we are adept at analyzing these cases and viewing them holistically. We also have an established network of respected medical experts on whom to rely in building cases.

By preparing thoroughly and arming ourselves with information, we will be in a strong position to negotiate a favorable settlement on your behalf. However, it is common for birth injury claims to proceed to trial rather than settle. If that happens in your case, you be confident in our proven ability to win in court.
