Chicago Birth Injury Lawyers
Representing the Victims of Medical Malpractice & Their Families
The birth of a child is a time of hope and expectation, but when a birth injury occurs, those expectations may be replaced by feelings of fear, loss, and anger. Birth injuries are medically challenging for the newborn, and emotionally and psychologically devastating to the parents and other family members. Moreover, birth injuries can wreak financial havoc on the parents of the newborn, as many birth injuries require not only immediate medical attention but a lifetime of medical care and rehabilitative therapy.
When a birth injury results from the negligence of a doctor, nurse, medical professional, or health care provider, the experienced, compassionate lawyers at Cogan & Power, P.C. are here to help the family recover emotionally and financially from the pain, suffering, and medical expenses that they and their child will sustain as a result of the medical malpractice.
Our birth injury lawyers in Chicago are here to protect you. Schedule your free initial consultation by calling us at (312) 436-0731 today.
