At Ball Law Group, we only represent children and their families who have suffered catastrophic injuries at the hands of doctors, nurses and hospitals.

We are the only law firm in Chicago that dedicates its entire practice to this area of the plaintiff`s medical malpractice proceedings. Its founder, Jim Ball, has been an attorney for more than 36 years and has successfully prosecuted medical malpractice cases for recoveries of more than $20,000,000, where other leading Chicago law firms failed to find a case and refused to help the client. Ball Law Group succeeds where others have failed. Proud to have provided compassionate legal advice to families of children across the country who have experienced severe disabilities during childbirth and neonatal trials and during the pediatric phase, ball Law Group strongly believes that negligent individuals must be held accountable for their actions. We strive for maximum recovery to relieve families of the enormous cost of future expenses needed to support child development. Maternal-fetal medicine, also known as perinatology, is the field of obstetrics that specializes in the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies. The most common procedures performed by perinatologists, during which serious medical/legal problems arise, are the conduct of ultrasound examinations. If an ultrasound is performed or misread, some conditions can be overlooked, which can potentially lead to serious injuries to both mother and child.
