Holding Medical Professionals Accountable When Necessary
We place a lot of trust in doctors, surgeons, nurses and other medical professionals. Most of the time, this trust is well-placed. However, occasionally, when their actions contribute to a serious injury or even death, they should be held accountable. At Hicks & Funfsinn, PLLC, our attorneys help injured individuals across Kentucky pursue damages following a birth injury or other medical incident. With over two decades of combined experience, we provide dedicated guidance to help you navigate the complicated nature of medical malpractice cases.
Assistance In Complex Birth Injury Cases
Birth injuries can be the result of improper care throughout the pregnancy, or during labor or delivery. In the excitement that follows the birth of your child, it can be overwhelming and terrifying to learn of a birth injury.
Our attorneys provide sound legal counsel throughout a distressing time. We will examine every factor that could have led to the injury, including:
- Improper care during labor and delivery
- Mishandling of the baby following delivery
- Failure to perform a necessary procedure in time
- Use of an improper technique or unnecessary force
These factors and more can lead to harmful and permanent conditions, including spinal cord damage, brain injuries or cerebral palsy. Such cases can be complex and time-consuming to build. We will consult with medical professionals and experts seeking to prove your child received inadequate and ultimately harmful care.
Experience With A Wide Array Of Medical Malpractice Cases
Any sort of serious injury or illness caused by medical negligence or malpractice is frustrating. You may be experiencing rising medical bills, potentially lost wages and pain and suffering. Our lawyers can help you identify your legal options and bring a valid claim for compensation.
These claims involve unique obstacles, including a limited timeframe to file a claim and the required review of another medical professional to certify that you have a case. We assist in navigating through these hurdles to efficiently pursue damages to help you move forward.
