Birth Injuries

The birth of a child is typically one of the most joyous occasions for parents. Unfortunately, sometimes a parent’s delight is cut short when he or she finds out that his or her newborn has suffered a life-threatening birth injury.


If your child has sustained an injury during or directly following delivery that you believe resulted from the negligence of your doctor, nurse or health care facility, we urge you to consult with Leiter Law Offices. We want to help you obtain full and fair compensation for the damages your child and your family have suffered.


Established in Joliet, our leading Illinois injury law firm tirelessly represents parents and other individuals in a comprehensive range of medical malpractice cases often involving serious and debilitating birth injuries.


Providing Compassionate Legal Assistance When Your Newborn Has Been Hurt

No one wants their family member — especially a child — to suffer due to the negligence or carelessness of another. At Leiter Law Offices, we are committed to holding the responsible parties accountable for birth injuries to your newborn involving:


  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Bruising and fractures from forceps
  • Broken bones
  • Brachial plexus
  • Skin problems
  • Other nerve damage


Like traumatic brain injuries, birth injuries can sometimes be difficult to detect following the days and weeks after delivery. Over the first five years of a child’s life, cognitive, sensory and motor skill problems may become more apparent, often leaving parents with several questions involving the cause of the medical issues.


Joliet birth injury attorney Gregory Leiter is a strong advocate of birth injury victims. With extensive knowledge of Illinois medical malpractice and negligence laws, our founding lawyer can help you explore the possibility of all liable parties, whether your child’s injuries were immediate or latent.


We are prepared to hold negligent medical employees and facilities accountable for the birth injuries that caused your child to suffer. With the help of medical, psychological and financial experts, our team will work with you to learn about the effect that the birth injury has on the life of your child and your family.
