Louisville Birth Injury Lawyers
Legal Assistance for Mothers & Infants in Kentucky
A birth injury is caused to a baby’s body before, during, or immediately after birth. When a complication arises during pregnancy or during labor and delivery, doctors and nurses must act quickly, making sound decisions that keep a newborn safe and healthy. At Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC, we represent parents of newborns who have suffered birth injuries. Our firm seeks compensation that gives parents the resources to provide their injured child with the best care possible.
If your child is the victim of a birth injury, contact an attorney from Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC. Our firm offers a free initial consultation and handles all cases on a contingent fee basis.
We Have the Time & Resources to Handle Your Case
Most law firms are unable to provide the time and resources necessary to effectively handle a birth injury lawsuit, specifically as it relates to obstetric malpractice. Our firm has the experience and financial resources that are needed to go up against hospitals, physicians and their large insurance companies.
Over the past 30 years, we have secured verdicts in excess of $20 million in birth injury cases involving:
- Brain damage, including cerebral palsy
- Fetal monitoring negligence
- Lack of oxygen
- Shoulder dystocia/Erb’s palsy
- Collar bone injuries
- Vacuum extraction injuries
- Forceps injuries
- Compression of the umbilical cord or nuchal cord
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
- Failure to perform a C-section
We handle a small number of cases at any given time. This provides each client with very personalized attention. Our firm’s successes are rooted in the way we approach each injured client and his or her concerns as we seek fair compensation.
