Kansas City, Missouri Attorneys for Birth-Injury Claims

Birth Injuries and Death

Every parent dreams of having a healthy baby. A birth injury that occurs because of a careless medical error can change these expectations. Parents are left wondering how to cope with the costs associated with a child's long-term disability or worse.

A birth injury can occur anytime before, during, or after a child's birth and can have lifelong consequences. You trust a hospital, physician or health care provider to furnish you and your child with the utmost care. When that trust is violated, you need answers. Since 1984, our firm has been advocating for the rights of injured people throughout the nation. We hold doctors, nurses, obstetricians and hospitals accountable for the injuries they cause.

We work with board certified medical doctors throughout the United States to determine the exact cause of a birth injury. Whether caused by a failure to deliver in a timely manner or excessive or improper use of vacuum extraction and/or forceps during delivery, we can find out the causes of:

  • Shoulder dystocia;

  • Cerebral Palsy;

  • Brachial plexus injury;

  • Erb's Palsy;

  • Brain damage; and

  • Mental impairment.

It is disturbing how many birth injuries are caused by careless medical errors. One would think that your child would always receive professional care. If you believe that a doctor or nurse has committed medical malpractice, contact The Redfearn Law Firm for a free initial consultation with an experienced trial attorney.
