Helping To Defend Health Care Professionals Accused Of Causing Birth Injuries

At Gazak Brown, P.S.C., we devote much of our practice to defending doctors and other health care professionals and providers against claims of professional malpractice, particularly concerning birth injuries. Our attorneys are aggressive litigators with two having advanced degrees that relate to their particular areas of practice.

We understand the critical nature of medical litigation. We are mindful that a lawsuit may result in a tarnished reputation, loss of license to practice, suspension of hospital privileges and even loss of personal assets.

Assisting In A Wide Range Of Malpractice Cases Involving Birth injuries

When accusations are made against medical professionals that allege negligence during the birth of a child, the case can quickly become extremely complex. Some of these injuries require lifelong care, and it is important to have a strong advocate on your side. We represent health care workers and their insurers with claims involving birth injuries such as:

  • Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Erb's palsy
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Maternal death

There is documentation for all care that transpires in a hospital or clinic. To handle allegations of delivery room malpractice, wrongful death or misdiagnosis, we gather records, review films, talk with the physician to gather facts and obtain strong medical experts in multiple specialties.

We vigorously seek defenses to all elements of a malpractice claim: duty, standard of care, causation and damages.

We will make inquiries to help determine if the patient was subjected to unreasonable risk, future surgeries or additional expenses. We also use experts to determine whether other physicians would have made the same or similar choices under the circumstances.
