Independence Infant Brain Injury Attorney
Most parents anticipate the birth of a child with tremendous optimism. While aware that complications can occur, we expect and deserve diligent medical attention by well-trained doctors, nurses and other professionals. If something went wrong and your infant has been seriously harmed or permanently disabled, the concern and grief you feel may be overwhelming.
If your child has cerebral palsy or another significant brain injury, the road ahead can be daunting financially and personally. At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, you can work with an experienced metro Kansas City cerebral palsy lawyer determined to investigate what caused the injury, whether it could and should have been prevented, and all legal options for obtaining compensation that can make a critical difference for your child and for you.
Proving Liability for Negligent Prenatal Care and Failure to React to Complications
Our case experience and capabilities extend across the spectrum of medical procedures and errors leading to birth injuries, including:
- Negligence in prenatal care that might have exposed risk factors for shoulder dystocia and other serious delivery complications
- Failure to react effectively to complications during labor and childbirth by ordering the proper delivery method such as a C-section, executing known maneuvers to extract the baby safely or completing prompt intubation in an effort to minimize neurological consequences of hypoxia (oxygen deprivation)
- Medication and anesthesia errors
- Failed communication between doctors, nurses and others involved in the delivery
Although obtaining just results for medical malpractice victims has become more challenging in an era of "tort reform," our firm remains dedicated to this practice area. We have recovered hundreds of millions in compensation for our clients, and we stand prepared to investigate your potential birth injury lawsuit and offer sound legal guidance as well as results-driven representation.
