In the state of Illinois, birth injury clams are considered tort crimes because they involve the breach of a civil duty rather than a contractual duty. In order for a tort action to prove successful, negligence must be proven. As far as a medical malpractice claim is concerned, negligence occurs when a healthcare provider deviates from the “standard of care” as defined by the medical community, resulting in injury to the patient. Defining this standard changes on a case-by-case basis, which is why it is imperative that you have an experienced attorney on your side to gather the necessary evidence surrounding your negligence claim. No matter where you live in Illinois, Chicago or the Suburbs we are here for you 24 hours a day 7 days week, Attorney Dan Newlin or one of his experienced Brain Injury attorneys will be honored to meet you in person to advise you of all of your legal rights and will be honored to personally help you during this difficult time.

In order to prove negligence, your lawyer will typically require the expert testimony of a medical professional to define the standard of care as it applies to your claim. This expert witness will discuss the details of your care with you and determine if your physician deviated from what any reasonable doctor would do under similar circumstances. If it can be shown that your doctor’s actions were not up to this standard, your attorney will begin gathering further evidence.

Although the testimony from the expert witness is the most important way of defining the standard of care, medical texts and publications may be used to further bolster the claim. In addition to proving the failure to adhere to the standard of care, your lawyer may gather other evidence to support your claim, including the following:

  • Photographs of your injuries
  • Doctor’s notes
  • Test results
  • Letters received from your healthcare provider
  • Receipts from medical procedures
  • Your personal written log entries detailing your child’s injury

On rare occasions, no proof of deviation from the standard of care is necessary because the damages are obvious enough to a third party, non-professional. However, this is extremely uncommon in birth injury claims and even then a lawyer will often obtain the testimony of an expert witness to add weight to your claim.
