Bold labels are required.
If your child was born with a serious medical condition, disability or infection, contact the Pittsburgh personal injury attorneys at Biancheria & Maliver for a free consultation and case evaluation about your right to recover damages for medical malpractice in prenatal care and the delivery room. Our focus on medical negligence litigation can help you recover the resources you will need to provide the best care possible for a child injured at birth.
Our attorneys represent plaintiffs in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia birth injury cases such as the following:
- Cerebral palsy and other anoxic or hypoxic brain injuries resulting in permanent disability
- Neonatal infections such as Group B streptococcus (GBS)
- Injuries resulting from complicated or delayed c-section delivery
- Gestational diabetes
- Brachial plexus, shoulder dystocia, Erb's palsy, or other conditions reflecting negligent manipulation of the fetus
- Birth trauma, cephalohematoma, or hemorrhaging that indicates improper use of obstetric instruments
While many birth injuries reflect careless monitoring of vital signs or poor response to complications in the delivery room, others are the consequence of improper care or misdiagnoses during pregnancy. In either case, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge required to investigate and present your case effectively.
All medical malpractice practice lawsuits must be supported by a certificate of merit signed by a board-certified medical expert who is familiar with the standard of care applicable to your case. This means that your birth injury claim will be examined and investigated with the help of an obstetrician, an anesthesiologist, a surgeon, or other medical expert familiar with the standard of practice that we allege was violated. Deborah Maliver is a board-certified internist who has the unique ability to work equally effectively with attorneys, insurers, juries and the consulting physicians who will help assess and present your birth injury claim.
