Pediatric Medical Malpractice

Chicago Pediatric Medical Malpractice Lawyers

While you should be able to trust that doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff will provide the utmost in quality care to your child, the unfortunate truth is that children are not immune to medical negligence. If your child was injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice, it is in your interest to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer.

At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, in Chicago, our Chicago medical malpractice lawyers can help you through this difficult time. Our founding attorney, Steven J. Seidman, has nearly 40 years of experience and can help you uncover answers and pursue justice. We hold negligent medical professionals accountable, seeking verdicts and settlements that provide injured children with the resources they need to live the healthiest, most normal lives possible.

Seeking Accountability For Medical Malpractice

Throughout Illinois, we represent injured children and their families in malpractice cases involving injuries such as:

Birth Injuries

These injuries, perhaps the most common malpractice-related injury suffered by children, have long-lasting ramifications for victims as well as entire families. We will thoroughly investigate the time during your pregnancy, prior to delivery, during labor, and immediately following delivery, looking for any instance of negligence that contributed to or caused your child’s injury.

Birth injuries such as Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy can happen for any number of reasons, including:

  • Delayed diagnosis of a breeched baby
  • Failure to perform a timely cesarean section
  • Failure to recognize fetal distress
  • Failure to recognize symptoms of hypoxia
  • Failure to follow hospital procedure
  • Inadequate hospital procedure
