Birth injuries such as Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy, hypoxia, paralysis, shoulder dystocia and related injuries are complex matters but our medical training as physicians sets us apart from other lawyers and helps us to quickly uncover the truth and let you know what happened to your loved one. Make no mistake, doctors and hospitals will do everything possible to hide behind a wall of defense lawyers and insurance companies. If you believe your child suffered a birth injury as a result of medical mistake, the doctor and hospital is going to do everything they can to avoid responsibility. Hospitals and doctors pile on the injustice by denying responsibility for the injury they caused to your baby. We know this well because we have been advocating for injured babies and their families for 30 years. We are acutely aware of the defense game because the majority of the lawyers at Gershon, Willoughby and Getz are medical doctors. As medical doctors, we know what to look for in birth injury and medical malpractice cases, we know where the insurance company lawyers attempt to hide and cover things up; we know the games they play in order to deny justice to those they have injured and lives they have ruined. We have the medical background, training and resources to effectively fight negligent health providers and to protect others in the future.
