Pittsburgh Birth Injury Lawyers

A doctor's mistake during labor and delivery can mean a lifetime of disability for a baby.

If your child suffered a birth injury because of obstetric malpractice, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your child's injuries, current and future medical expenses, and more. Contact a birth injury attorney at Savinis & Kane for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Compensation for Victims

Our law firm has recovered substantial amounts of financial compensation for victims of all types of birth injury, including:

  • Failure to react to fetal distress
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Hypoxia
  • Failure to perform a timely C-section

Not all injuries to newborns are caused by birth trauma during delivery. Doctor errors and medication errors during pregnancy can also cause a child to be born with physical or mental impairments.

Working with Experts

Our medical malpractice lawyers will consult top medical experts to determine if your child was harmed by medical negligence. If so, we will work with a life care planner and economist to determine the full extent of damages. We will include the cost of necessary future medical treatments, necessary tools and devises, and, when necessary, modifications to your home to make it handicapped accessible.

Our experienced legal team will pursue the full amount of financial compensation you and your child deserve. To learn if we can be of assistance to you, please contact our law firm today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation.

Experience in the Courtroom:

John Kane tried a birth injury case that resulted in baby developing cerebral palsy in May 2006 before the case settled after several days of trial and examination of witnesses. The doctors, hospital, and medical practice, while denying their negligence, agreed to settle after more than a week of trial.
