Birth Injuries

Protecting Your Child's Best Interests

Birth Trauma and Negligence Attorney

Parents are often understandably reluctant to file birth injury claims against their doctor, nurse or midwife — especially when they consider him or her to be a nice person. However, a devastating birth injury will impact a child's entire life. Parents must remember that birth injury lawsuits are about protecting the best interests of their baby.

At the Peoria law firm of Nicoara & Steagall, our experienced birth injury lawyers bring over 30 years of respected personal injury representation to Central Illinois families devastated by birth trauma caused by malpractice.

The birth of a child should be an exciting and safe experience, not a tragedy that could have been avoided. When obstetricians and their staffs fail to follow accepted medical standards during labor and delivery, we can help hold them accountable for negligence involving:

  • Cerebral palsy (brain damage)
  • Erb's palsy (brachial plexus injury)
  • Nerve damage
  • Fractured collar bone or arms
  • Temporary paralysis
  • Skin irritations and disfigurement
  • Umbilical cord entrapment
  • Failure to monitor fetal distress
  • Vacuum extractor or forceps injury
  • Delay of C-section (Cesarean section)
  • Injuries to the mother

With his science background and medical malpractice experience, attorney John P. Nicoara is a nationally recognized legal advocate handling medical malpractice claims.

These experts help accurately evaluate the cause of the birth trauma, the extent of damage, and the fair amount of compensation you and your child will need moving forward in life.
