Chicago Birth Injury Attorney

Do you believe that your child suffered injury during birth due to the negligence of the doctor or other medical professionals involved? At Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, our birth injury lawyers are committed to Chicago residents and to providing results in medical malpractice cases in Chicago. We have been providing results for four decades now. You can be confident that we will work hard to provide results for you.

Our Willingness to Go to Trial Makes a Difference

Settlements are certainly a possibility, particularly when the hospital is the target of the lawsuit. However, settlements, especially fair ones, in birth injury and other medical malpractice cases are unlikely simply because of the fact that careers are in jeopardy. The other side — the medical professionals — will fight to protect their careers. We will fight for you, and that means going to trial if they don't offer a reasonable settlement.

Birth injury cases often proceed to trial. Local physicians routinely come to the rescue of their fellow doctors and testify on their behalf. At the same time they will rarely testify against them. We must, therefore, secure our medical malpractice witnesses from out of state. From our years of practice in this area of the law we know where to find the expert medical experts from teaching hospitals throughout the United States

Winning birth injury cases at trial requires that a strategic method be employed. These claims cannot simply be worked through. They must be thought through. Every element must be carefully considered. Strengths must be analyzed and weaknesses must be recognized. Drawing from out network of experts to help us, this is exactly what we do. We build strong cases that can succeed at trial.
