Wichita Lawyers Handling Birth Injury Cases
Our law firm holds negligent medical professionals accountable
When medical malpractice affects the lives of newborns, it can be especially upsetting. Medical professionals and facilities need to be held accountable when children are harmed as a result of their negligence. But the medical industry is very powerful and recovering financial compensation can be complicated.
The experienced lawyers at Warner Law Offices know the devastating impact that birth injuries can have on families. A birth injury can affect your family physically, emotionally and financially. We fight to hold negligent medical professionals and facilities accountable and help you recover the compensation you deserve.

- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Klumpke’s palsy
- Brain damage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Facial paralysis
- Bone fractures
How do birth injuries happen? They are often caused by negligence during labor and delivery. A caesarian section may have been delayed too long. Instruments such as extractors and forceps may have been handled improperly. In some cases, a doctor was negligent while providing prenatal care.
As a result of a birth injury, a child may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and multiple follow-up visits with doctors and specialists. A child may also need lifelong specialized care, requiring home health aides and home modifications.
When birth injuries are caused by medical negligence, you deserve financial compensation. But the legal process can be lengthy and complicated. Medical professionals and hospitals typically don’t admit to doing anything wrong. Insurance companies will fight your claim aggressively because they know there’s a lot of money at stake.
Our Wichita birth injury lawyers have been fighting for victims of medical malpractice for decades. We have the experience, legal knowledge, medical training and resources needed to get results.
We start by getting the facts about what happened. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence of negligence. Our lawyers take legal action to gain access to internal records. We carefully review medical records and other documentation. We interview witnesses and consult medical experts who can help us determine if standards of care were followed.
We are committed to helping you recover compensation
The insurance company may offer you a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages (a legal term for medical bills and other expenses) that were suffered. That’s not good enough. We fight for a resolution of your case that provides compensation for all medical expenses related to the injury, all future medical expenses your child will require and other damages due to disfigurement, disability and pain and suffering.
Our firm builds strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously. Our team includes attorney Anne H. Pankratz, who is also a registered nurse. We understand the legal and medical issues involved in birth injury cases. And we are committed to fighting to help you get the best possible outcome.
If your child suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence, it’s important to get trusted legal advice.
