Supporting Your Case with Evidence of Negligence
Every state has rules and norms related to how you navigate the lawsuit process to prove a birth injury case. A Des Plaines newborn brain hemorrhage birth injury lawyer with the Birth Injury Lawyers Group will be familiar with this process and can help you build a case based on medical negligence.
Our team can call on a vast network of medical care professionals who often serve as expert witnesses for our clients. We will select the best expert for your case. Then, we can obtain your child’s relevant medical records, medical imaging scans, and other records. The expert will review the files and help us understand:
- What caused your child’s brain hemorrhage
- When it should have been diagnosed
- What treatment should have been used
- If medical negligence occurred
- Who is liable for the malpractice that occurred
We can also secure additional witness statements and other evidence in your case, developing a strong argument for a fair and just settlement. We will present this evidence, along with proof of your family’s current and future damages, to the insurance company and legal team representing the liable parties.
Often, we reach a negotiated settlement at this stage, which allows us to avoid filing a lawsuit and going to trial. When cases go to court, our litigation team is ready to argue on your behalf and protect your child’s rights.

Malpractice Causes Some Brain Bleed-Related Injuries
According to the peer-reviewed medical journal Current Medicinal Chemistry, three to four of every 1,000 babies born suffer some level of brain hemorrhage.
It is usually very minor, although that is far from the case for some newborns. Serious neonatal brain hemorrhages can cause severe, lifelong impairments, including physical and cognitive disabilities. These children often need:
- Extensive testing
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Ongoing monitoring, treatment, and support
- Additional support for activities of daily living
- Long-term care
While there is no sign of negligence when some of these hemorrhages occur, others occur because a doctor or another care team member violates the accepted standard of care. They cause the baby to suffer a head injury, or they fail to diagnose and treat the infant, allowing more long-term damage to occur.
Infants born before 28 weeks of gestation are at the highest risk for brain hemorrhages, according to MedlinePlus. When a larger, full-term infant suffers this type of bleed, or if the bleed in a small or premature newborn is not diagnosed quickly, it may be a sign that negligence occurred.
