We understand that it can be difficult to determine whether a birth injury could have been prevented and whether you should take legal action. That is why we do what we do. Our Chicago-based law firm has examined hundreds of birth injury cases, and one of our attorneys, Beverly P. Spearman, is also a registered nurse who specializes in the area of obstetrics, including high risk OB, labor and delivery, postpartum, newborn nursery and neonatal intensive care.
At James D. Montgomery & Associates, Ltd., we customize your birth injury claim to your personal needs and goals in taking legal action against an obstetrician or other medical professional. If an error was caused by negligence in prenatal care, during birth/delivery or in postnatal care, we will find evidence and hold negligent parties accountable for injuries caused to your baby and to the mother.
Leading Chicago Medical Malpractice Law Firm
Our firm is renowned throughout Illinois and across the country for client-centric, top-quality service. We have been successfully advocating for victims' rights and fair injury compensation for over 40 years. We regularly handle highly complex cases, pursuing multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured clients throughout the Greater Chicago region.
If you have experienced any of the following types of injuries or circumstances, we encourage you to consult with a lawyer at our firm as soon as possible:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia or Erb's palsy
- Lack of oxygen to the fetal brain during birth
- Anoxia secondary to fetal distress
- Delay in ordering a cesarean section after complications in delivery became apparent
- Injuries to the mother
- Negligent prenatal or postnatal care
- Misdiagnosis of medical complications
We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay nothing unless we achieve a favorable verdict or settlement in your case.
Doctors and hospitals often have strong defense in medical malpractice cases. You need a plaintiffs' firm that will match their resources and fight to maximize your recovery for past and future costs. No one deserves to suffer from mistakes made by medical professionals — people we should be able to trust more than almost anyone else.
