Birth-Related Infections

Our Chicago, IL birth injury attorneys demand justice

An infection sustained by a baby before, during or shortly after birth can pose serious health risks to the child. That’s why birth-related infections remain one of the most common causes of birth injuries.

Common causes

There are many reasons why newborn children sustain birth injuries due to infections. Common causes include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Expose to infections in hospitals
  • Unsanitary hospital conditions

Warning signs

Because infections in newborn children pose such a serious health risk, physicians need to pay close attention and carefully monitor the mother’s and baby’s health. Warning signs that something could be wrong with your baby include:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Decreased movement
  • Lack of appetite
  • Excessive tiredness
