How Medical Negligence Can Cause Newborn Brain Hemorrhages
To hold a medical care provider responsible for your infant’s brain hemorrhage, you must show that medical negligence occurred. Neonatal brain hemorrhages are actually fairly common when compared to other neurological disorders in newborns.
According to Current Medicinal Chemistry, between three and four of every 1,000 newborns experience this type of injury. Not all of them support a medical malpractice case. However, many may.
A doctor or another medical care professional can cause or contribute to your child’s challenges by:
- Causing trauma to the baby’s head through an accident or negligence during delivery
- Failing to monitor for a brain bleed despite the risk factors involved
- Failing to diagnose the child despite their symptoms
- Failing to provide treatment when necessary
For example, babies born too early are at an increased risk for intraventricular hemorrhages. If a child was born at 25 weeks’ gestation with low birth weight, the doctor should have monitored them closely for signs of this type of brain bleed. If the doctor failed to do this, the child may not have received the emergency medical treatment required to reduce the risk of brain damage and permanent disabilities.
A Springfield newborn brain hemorrhage birth injury lawyer with the Birth Injury Lawyers Group can determine who is liable for your child’s injuries and hold them responsible. The doctor we consult with about your case will likely review your child’s medical records and determine if it is a case of medical negligence.

Timeline for Taking Legal Action in Your Child’s Illinois Birth Injury Case
You will need to meet deadlines to secure a payout based on your child’s birth injury. If your attorney cannot reach a fair and just settlement in your child’s case, you may need to file a civil suit and go to trial. There are strict timelines for beginning this process, although there are also exceptions to these deadlines.
In general, victims of medical malpractice in Illinois must meet deadlines under the statute 735 ILCS 5/13-212. This law generally gives medical malpractice victims between two to four years to sue; however, malpractice victims under the age of 18 may have as much as eight years to sue.
Your lawyer can explain the deadlines that apply to your case and how quickly you need to move forward based on your case’s circumstances.
