Birth Trauma Litigation

GCE lawyers have developed a particular expertise in defending, often through trial, the most complex birth trauma cases. Hospitals and delivering physicians often face high exposure when a child is injured during the labor and delivery process. GCE's partners have tried in excess of 20 birth injury cases and defended hundreds, often being retained to handle the most complex and high-exposure cases no matter where they arise across the country. In doing this, GCE's lawyers have developed a nationwide network of consulting experts and have also tangled with plaintiff's experts across the country in the areas of obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, pediatric neurology, pediatric neuroradiology, neonatology, developmental pediatrics, and other areas of medicine related to these always complex claims. GCE's experience in this area allows them to efficiently converse with the health care provider defendant and the experts on the medicine involved. GCE's lawyers also keep up with developments in this area of medicine by regularly receiving ACOG updates, AAP updates, and updates from various child neurology organizations.
