Detecting a Birth Injury
Birth Injury Lawyers in Chicago
The detection of a preventable
birth injury is not always easy. Certainly, as a parent, you may have observed something
is wrong. Your baby may not react like other babies; he or she may have
muscle tone that is loose or floppy or your child may exhibit a lack of
coordination. There may be bruising or other indicators that cause you
to suspect something is not right. If you have observed any abnormalities,
and you still have questions despite your doctor's explanation, speak
with a birth injury lawyer at Beam & Raymond immediately.
Our Chicago birth injury attorneys proudly offer
free consultations to clients nationwide: Call (866) 766-3806.
Some indicators of birth injuries include:
- Poor coordination
- Bruising and / or excessive molding of your child's head or scalp
- Extreme lethargy
- Extended stay in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
- Skin discoloration
- Mental retardation
- Cerebral palsy
- Diagnosis of hypoxic-ischemic injury or neonatal encephalopathy
This is by no means a complete list of all the indicators of a birth injury.
Following delivery, a mother can also have indicators of a possible birth
injury. You should discuss the indicators that you have observed and what
you have been told by your doctor with our professionals. Our team of
Chicago birth injury lawyers has represented children throughout the nation.
We are located in Chicago, IL, and have more than 30 years of experience
in recognizing the indicators of a preventable birth injury.
