The Statute of Limitations in Your Case
Your child’s health and recovery will understandably take the majority of your time and attention. Because the time you have to file your birth injury lawsuit is limited, involving our team may help safeguard your right to seek compensation for your son or daughter.
Per 735 ILCS 5/13-212(a), the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice case is typically two years from the date the injury was discovered, and no more than four years from the date the injury occurred. To get a full understanding of the timeline, ensure compliance, and avoid putting your potential right to compensation at risk, consult a legal firm that is familiar with the laws in your state.
Our team can help you understand the statute of limitations and how Illinois rules might allow you to toll, or pause, this timeline for a birth injury case. In addition to timely filing, we may also be able to help with an accurate valuation of your financial expenses and losses.

- Medical care
- Pain and suffering
- Physical impairment
- Parental income loss
- Mental or emotional pain
A Springfield newborn brain ischemia lawyer from our firm could compile documents and evidence that support the types and amount of compensation you are seeking, as well as your right to seek them.

Let Our Team Help You Prove a Birth Injury Occurred
Physical pressure exerted on an infant passing through the birth canal is often cited as the cause of many birth injuries. Research also maintains that some birth injuries might be preventable with cesarean delivery, especially for deliveries involving large babies or breech presentation.
Perinatal asphyxia—a decrease in the flow of blood or oxygen during delivery—is a primary cause of newborn brain ischemia. Perinatal asphyxia is often caused by:
- Fetal abnormalities
- Placental abruption
- Severe fetal infection
- Untreated maternal illness
- Umbilical cord obstruction
- Severe maternal blood loss
In some cases, the cause might remain unknown. If one of these circumstances at birth led to your child’s recent diagnosis, our team can review their medical records and consult with medical experts to prove a birth injury occurred. We may then be able to establish your right to financial compensation.
