Children who have sustained birth injuries during delivery at Kaiser, or through the actions of Kaiser Permanente physicians, require representation by lawyers familiar with Kaiser obstetrical negligence.
- If you are a Kaiser member, you may not be aware that your legal options are limited if your child suffers a birth injury under the care of a Kaiser Permanente health care provider or in a Kaiser Permanente Hospital.
- Kaiser Permanente includes provisions in all of its group health insurance policies prohibiting you from filing a lawsuit in court and limiting your remedy for a medical malpractice claim to arbitration.
- Statistics show that individuals who represent themselves in these proceedings lose 75% of the time!
If you are a Kaiser Permanente member and have suffered a personal injury as the result of negligence or carelessness by one of your medical service providers, then you and your child need a law firm that understands the Kaiser Permanente system and has a history of successfully representing Kaiser members in Kaiser Permanente arbitration proceedings.

EXAMPLE OF OUR SUCCESS
Failure to Recognize Fetal Distress – Quadriplegia/Brain Damage – over $5 million
Walkup attorneys negotiated a cash and annuity settlement with a present cash value in excess of five million dollars on behalf of an infant born with severe developmental delay, spastic quadriparesis, and permanent neurological injuries after Kaiser San Francisco doctors and nursing staff failed to monitor the mother and deliver the baby quickly when fetal heart monitors indicated severe distress.
