Birth Injury Litigation In Kansas City

Children are the most important aspect of the lives of most parents. When a son or daughter suffers serious injuries, it is a tragic situation. When these injuries are the direct result of a medical professional’s negligent actions, the situation is inexcusable.

If you have a child who has suffered birth injuries or wrongful death as a result of medical malpractice, talk with an experienced lawyer from Yonke Law LLC. We understand that you are facing unique and extremely difficult challenges, and we will handle your legal matter with professionalism, compassion and care. With more than 20 years of experience handling med mal claims in Kansas City, Missouri, we know how to get you the compensation you deserve.

Although our lawyers cannot undo a wrongful death or other birth injury to your child, we can help your family obtain compensation and a measure of justice for the tragedies you have been forced to endure.

Our attorneys represent clients in birth injury claims involving:

  • Cerebral palsy: Cerebral palsy is one of the most common birth injuries caused by medical malpractice. We can help you recognize the signs of cerebral palsy at birth, determine whether it was caused by your doctor’s negligence and fight to get you full compensation.
  • Erb’s palsy: Erb’s palsy is a type of shoulder and arm paralysis often caused by the child being pulled too aggressively from the mother, or due to head and neck strain during birth.
  • Severe brain damage: Often caused by lack of oxygen or nutrients to the child due to umbilical cord stress during birth, severe brain damage and traumatic brain injury are all too common during birth.
  • Wrongful death: Sadly, due to negligence of doctors, nurses and other medical staff, some babies do not survive the birthing process.
