We Can Help You Calculate Your Damages
You do not have to calculate the known and anticipated costs of your recoverable damages on your own. According to 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes 5/2-1115.2, you might be entitled to the following types of financial recovery:
- Economic damages including current and future medical expenses, loss of parental income, loss of future earnings, in-home care, and rehabilitative support
- Non-economic damages including pain and suffering, lasting impairments or disabilities, and mental and emotional distress on the part of parents and child
Our case assessment team may help you objectively value your compensation lawsuit. We may also create a checklist that ensures all of your financial expenses and losses are taken into account. Our goal is to make sure your lawsuit is not undervalued or underpaid and that your family is not further stressed by financial anxiety.
Financial Compensation via an Out-of-Court Settlement
Like most injured clients, you may prefer to resolve your lawsuit without going to court. When our team negotiates on your behalf, we may start by assigning a monetary value to your lawsuit and using that number to steer settlement negotiations. While a recent client’s birth injury claim was resolved with a $1.15 million settlement agreement, your lawsuit’s settlement will have its own value based on:
- The severity of your child’s diagnosis
- The length of their required treatment plan
- Your total parental income losses
- The impact of your child’s diagnosis on your lifestyle
When we negotiate a settlement on your behalf, we take these and many other factors into consideration and fight for an optimal outcome. The final decision to accept or reject a financial settlement is always yours to make, but our team works hard to help you carefully weigh the pros and cons of each offer you receive.

A Lawyer Can Help You Eliminate the Risk of Running Out of Time
Like most people, you probably know that civil lawsuits have a state-mandated filing deadline. In Elgin, yours is determined by the statute of limitations in 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes 5/13-212, which typically gives the families of newborn medical malpractice victims eight years to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
One way to ensure your lawsuit is filed on time is by getting our legal team started on your compensation lawsuit without delay. With early involvement from a lawyer familiar with the laws of your state, you can focus on caring for your child while we focus on building an effective lawsuit on your behalf.
