6 Medical Failures That Can Cause Birth Injuries
- Failing to perform a C-section when it is necessary
- Failing to monitor the mother / child's oxygen
- Failing to diagnose and treat any complications
- Failing to properly use birthing tools (ex: forceps)
- Failing to monitor potential issues with hemorrhaging
- Failing to properly manipulate the child's body
What Is My Case Worth?
The amount your child’s case will demand will depend on the injuries they’ve suffered, as well as the costs to treat those injuries. Part of our work is evaluating every possible expense your child’s care has required and will require, from the moment he or she was born. Economic and medical experts will assist us in calculating the amount of money your family will need to provide quality care—even adjusting for inflation to ensure that care will continue for decades to come.
How Do I Know If I Have a Case?
Beam Legal Team can make that determination with a great deal of accuracy, thanks to our vast experience. Specifically, we hire medical experts (at no cost to our clients) to review hospital records and look for signs that medical errors took place in your case. Their evaluation will let us know if you have a fighting chance in court, or if you’ll have the ability to negotiate a settlement. At the very least, our firm can provide you with answers regarding your child’s injuries.
How Much Does a Lawyer Cost?
There is no charge whatsoever unless we win—this arrangement is known as a contingency fee. You pay nothing (and owe us nothing) until your case wins or settles. There’s an old saying: “the contingency fee is the working man’s key to the courthouse.” If it weren’t for contingency fees, many of our families would never be able to take negligent hospitals or doctors to court.
How Long Does a Case Take?
From the first consultation to the final payment, the average case length is about 2 years to 3 and a half years. Some cases take much longer, depending on your jurisdiction—we’ve worked on cases that take 10 to 15 years to resolve. Thankfully, that’s not the norm. No firm pushes harder to resolve your case as fast as possible; we know how badly our clients need medical treatment and support.

Our Clients Say It Best
"God put me in touch with this family of mine ( I say family because that's how they fight for you). My daughter suffered severe trauma during her birth not to mention other horrific mistakes by a HUGE well known hospital and doctor. I knew right away that there was something wrong. From the day she was born I started my quest to find someone to help me make a better life for my child because ,she was going to need many things to help her live a good life. Well let me just say law offices are NOT the same they will sit on your case and waste your time because they are scared to get out there and do what is right !! I went through 7 attorneys that wasted mine and my daughters time and by God's grace I did not give up and someone referred me to my new family Beam Legal Team( I call them all by their first names LOL). At this point I was running out of time for statute of limitations because of all the wasted time of other BIG firms. They got right to it and so the fight began! I am not the easiest mom to work with because of my passion and fight for my child but everyone listened to my concerns my facts my outbursts my research and my demands! I at one point would call daily and ask 100 questions and they were answered! They have angels that fight here....it takes time so don't get discouraged but in the end you will get results ...I only wish I had found them first. My case is settled and my now teenager , will be able to have everything she needs for a blessed and happy life! Don't wait or waste your time with law offices that say they can help and shove your case under the desk ..I have worked with this team for 10 years and will proudly call them family....Our love and gratitude to Jack, Lori, Brittney, Ryan, Erika and so many others who made my daughter part of their life! xxoo"
"I am so happy with our outcome. Our everyday obstacles can be up or down and can be challenging. But when I lay my head at night it is great knowing that Carson will be taken care of for his future. Thanks to Jack and Melody and the team at the Beam Legal Team taking their time and interest in our case and never giving up on us. You all are so amazing and truly unbelievable. I have come to terms with Carson's disability and the medical malpractice. I am happy to announce that I am expecting a new addition to our family. A Little Princess. I am so happy with our outcome and so glad we worked as a team to fight to the end."
"It was a privilege to see you in action and I am so grateful for what you do (fighting for kids injured by the very doctors paid to care for them). Congratulations on the Ewing v. University of Chicago verdict!!! I watched as much of the trial as I could (just there to learn) and know what an EXCELLENT job you did in presenting Isaiah's case. It was a privilege to see you in action and I am so grateful for what you do (fighting for kids injured by the very doctors paid to care for them"
