Why choose Ken Sigelman to pursue your birth injury case?
Some birth injuries are caused by improper
medical care during pregnancy, labor, and
delivery, or immediately after birth. A
disabled child and his/her family have the
right to know what happened and why. If
your child’s injuries were caused
by medical wrongdoing, it takes a birth
injury lawyer with special knowledge, experience,
and commitment to achieve justice and obtain
The law firm of Kenneth M. Sigelman &

and time again in representing disabled
children and their families.

is also a licensed physician and surgeon.
His medical background helps him at every
phase of a birth injury case, including:
- Recognizing the important medical issues
in the case;
- Reviewing and understanding the pertinent
- Identifying the medical specialties
in which expert witnesses will be needed,
and effectively securing the involvement

palsy and other birth injury cases for more
than 17 years. He has personally litigated

Medical malpractice cases are often very
difficult to win on behalf of the patient
and family. Only with careful, skillful
preparation of the entire case is there
any likelihood of a favorable result. Unless
lawyers have a track record that demonstrates
the willingness to take a case all the way
through trial, and the ability to win at
trial, insurance companies will rarely make
reasonable offers to settle out of court.
Ken Sigelman’s philosophy is that
the only way to persuade the insurance companies
to treat disabled children and their families
fairly is to always prepare vigorously,
with the assumption that every birth injury
case could go to trial.
Ken Sigelman is absolutely committed to
seeking justice and obtaining fair compensation
for the children and families he represents.
Initial consultations are always free of
charge. If Ken accepts a birth injury case,
attorney’s fees are on a contingency
basis. Fees are owed only if you win, and
are based on a percentage of the money recovered.
In cases involving children, the court generally
must approve the birth injury lawyer’s
fees as fair and reasonable.
The insurance companies that defend doctors,
hospitals, or HMOs are willing to spend
virtually unlimited amounts of money on
high-priced lawyers and expert witnesses
to defeat your child’s birth injury
case. Ken Sigelman commits all of the resources
necessary to keep the playing field level,
even if it means spending $100,000 or more
to prepare the case as strongly as possible.
The final, and perhaps most important,
aspect of commitment to clients is compassion.
Raising a child injured at birth takes a
heavy toll on the entire family. Ken Sigelman
and the entire staff at Kenneth M. Sigelman
& Associates understand, empathize with,
and deeply respect the emotional and financial
sacrifices required of families under these
circumstances. Our job is to do everything
possible to assure that your disabled child’s
special needs will be provided for over
his/her entire lifetime.
