Injury or death to a baby at birth due to medical error is something no family should ever have to experience. This situation can be emotionally and financially traumatizing to an entire family. If this happens, it is crucial that you consult with a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Attorney Marios N. Karayannis has handled cases where a medical error has caused these types of devastating results and has secured seven-figure settlements on behalf of his clients. In cases where a baby dies, no amount of money can ever compensate a family for the loss of the child. That being said, the only remedy the family will likely have is a civil lawsuit that will compensate, monetarily, the parents and siblings for their loss. Beyond the monetary recovery, the litigation may also cause the doctors or hospital involved to re-examine protocols and practices that may, at the least, prevent another family from suffering a similar loss. Our law office is in Geneva, and we represent families in Kane, DuPage, Cook, Kendall, DeKalb and McHenry counties and the surrounding areas.
