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 are here to help the family recover emotionally and financially for the pain, suffering, and medical expenses that they and their child will sustain as a result of the medical malpractice.
Birth injury lawsuits involve challenges that the experienced Illinois birth injury lawyers at Cogan & Power are uniquely qualified to address. Our team of Chicago medical malpractice attorneys collaborates throughout every case and includes former defense lawyers, former in-house counsel at a well-respected teaching hospital, and a former obstetrical nurse, all of whom have extensive experience handling birth injury cases. Our clients appreciate the one-on-one relationship they develop with the partner handling the case, and the comprehensive, multifaceted attention their case receives. This collaboration also enables us to assemble a team of knowledgeable, highly qualified experts, physicians, and other consultants necessary to support the often-complex claims arising out of a preventable birth injury.
Understanding that our clients often are struggling with physical, financial, and emotional challenges, we are committed to providing the highest quality legal representation in an intimate and supportive environment. From the first phone call or visit, every client becomes a member of our professional family. Our partners take a personal interest in every case and every client, and communicate directly with their clients, keeping them well apprised of the progress of their case.
At Cogan & Power, we pride ourselves on representing people, not cases. We provide each of our clients with individual client attention and personalized legal advice, rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach to our legal representation.
