Illinois Fetal Monitoring Error Attorney
When mothers arrive at hospitals to deliver their babies, fetal monitoring is often the first order of business. These monitors, which are extremely sophisticated, are usually the best way to anticipate and manage delivery emergencies. Fetal monitors provide a steady stream of reliable information in real time. Such a wealth of information significantly improves the chances of a smooth delivery experience.
Fetal monitors are very sophisticated, and they are also very sensitive. Improper calibration or insufficient maintenance, no matter how slight, could skew the results. Placement is important as well. Most babies and mothers move a lot when they are in the delivery room. As a result, the fetal monitor often falls out of place. The medical staff must immediately address such emergencies. Waiting until the next hourly round is not an option in most cases.
In other words, the medical staff fails to see the big picture or fails to pay attention to details. In contrast, the visionary Illinois fetal monitoring error attorneys at Wais, Vogelstein, Forman, Koch & Norman never lose sight of these things. The big picture in a negligence claim is fair compensation for your serious injuries. We know the way to reach this destination is by paying close attention to details. So, our professional team never lets you down.
Why Should We Pursue a Medical Negligence Claim?
Nothing, and no one, can alter the events leading to a birth injury or reverse its effects. A judge or jury certainly does not have these powers. So, the best possible remedy is unavailable. Financial compensation, which is the next best thing, is available.
A birth injury related to a fetal monitoring error could lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even much more, in lifetime medical expenses. Most group health insurance companies do not pay for injury-related expenses, and most families cannot possibly afford to pay them out of pocket. Taxpayers should not pay these expenses either. That leaves the negligent party who is responsible for the injury to begin with.
Additionally, available compensation for pain and suffering does not fill the emotional void the injury created. But it gives families the resources they need to move on and put the incident behind them, at least to the greatest extent possible.
Punitive damages are important in a medical negligence claim as well. These additional damages deter future misconduct. A large award forces doctors to alter the ways they address patient health and safety. In other words, punitive damages help prevent future injuries, so other families need not endure the same pain and suffering yours must manage.
How Do We Find the Right Chicago Fetal Monitoring Error Attorney?
If your back hurts, you should go to a doctor who focuses on such issues. Likewise, if medical negligence has affected your family, you need a attorney who focuses on such matters. A general practice attorney simply will not suffice.
Dedication is just the beginning. These families also need experienced legal representation. That experience should include trial experience. You do not want a attorney who is experienced in finding the easy way out.
Finally, your attorney should be accessible. If you have a question or need to discuss your case, you should be able to meet with your attorney, and not a less-experienced associate or a non-attorney paralegal.
