Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 11, 2008 -- A new article, 'Rights Expanding for Plaintiffs with In Utero Injuries' is now available free from Clifford Law Offices. The Chicago law office is attempting to educate the public with legal articles on their website Chicago Personal Injury Attorney.
Here is an introduction, with a link to the full article below.
Much has been written about this election regarding the rights of the unborn. The rights of a fetus have been debated in courthouses throughout the country. Many states, such as New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Wisconsin have ruled that a child can bring an independent cause of action against his or her mother's obstetrician upon reaching the age of majority if there was negligence that caused injury at child birth.
Nationally renown personal injury attorney Robert Clifford of Chicago wrote about the issue involving a baby who was born in a breech position and with a torn umbilical cord. Little Patrick Draper suffered permanent injury and as a 20-year-old adult, he brought a lawsuit. Clifford writes about this interesting case of first impression in an article that initially appeared in the Chicago Lawyer, 'Rights Expanding for Plaintiff's With In Utero Injuries.' Clifford explains the history of this issue in the courts and how they have changed their thinking over the years to reflect new medical knowledge and technology. The article is interesting, touching on issues of public policy, informed consent and a physician's professional duties.
"At Clifford Law Offices, we offer free articles to educate people about subjects such as a plaintiff's rights and medical injuries," says Robert A. Clifford, Founder.
