A severe or catastrophic birth injury will change the course of a child's life forever. Such an injury will also profoundly change a family. Sometimes, these injuries are unavoidable, despite a doctor's best efforts. Other times, tragically, these injuries are the result of a doctor's negligence. When an obstetrician or other medical professional fails in his or her duties and harms a child, a lawyer can help a family pick up the pieces.

We are the attorneys of Robinson Salyers, PLLC. With offices in Shelbyville and Frankfort, we bring medical malpractice claims on behalf of families across Kentucky. While no amount of money may be able to make a child whole, this compensation can help a child live the fullest possible life.

Taking On All Types Of Birth Injury Claims

Our lawyers have the experience, knowledge and resources necessary to take on any type of birth injury case, including:

  • Cerebral palsy claims
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Failing to treat fetal distress, leading to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) and brain damage
  • Failing to manage pre-eclampsia and other symptoms of high-risk pregnancies

Cerebral palsy is sometimes unavoidable. In other cases, however, cerebral palsy could have been prevented had a doctor acted properly.

In all cases, we will look carefully at the evidence, working closely with expert medical professionals in order to support your case. We will also gather all facts to show the damages your child has suffered and the compensation that will be necessary to assist your child.

Medical malpractice cases can be very challenging. Insurance companies and doctors will go a long way to contest these cases, even in the face of clear negligence. Our lawyers will be ready to present a powerful case, either in trial or in settlement negotiations.
