Few injury cases are more agonizing that the serious injury or death of a newborn child or birth mother.
As a veteran medical malpractice attorney and wrongful death lawyer, Gregg Hollander and the professional staff at the Hollander Law Firm take special care in fighting for the rights of families who are dealing with a birth injury to an infant or mother.
Our firm’s founding principle, “Each Case is Personal,” is not just a motto – it is a mission each member of our team takes to heart. Never is it more critical that when we accept the honor and responsibility of representing a family coping with a birth injury.
Birth injuries are incredibly complex cases, from both a legal and medical standpoint. Frequently, it is necessary to pursue multiple parties in fighting for the compensation a family deserves. For example, failure to diagnose a potential medical complication early in a pregnancy may be the responsibility of a family doctor or gynecologist. The issue may be exacerbated or complicated by the actions of a hospital, the medical team assigned to the child birth, care received after child birth or even prescription medication or other pharmaceuticals used during the birthing process.
With two decades of trial experience in the Boca Raton area, birth injury attorney Gregg M. Hollander has handled thousands of injury cases throughout South Florida. Together with a team of professionals specially assembled to build your case, he and the staff of the Hollander Law Firm will conductive a comprehensive review of your medical records and decide on the best course of action for pursuing your claim.
Consulting a law firm with the necessary resources and experience to pursue a complex birth injury claim is critical to protecting your rights. Florida has a strict statute of limitations and specific legal requirements for pursuing a medical malpractice claim. Failure to consult qualified legal help as early as possible can have a negative impact on your case as attorneys and administrators for the hospitals, doctors and insurance companies begin moving to protect their rights as a matter of routine business practices.
At the Hollander Law Firm, you can rest assured that you will not only receive the personalized care and attention your case deserves, but that we will utilize all of the financial, legal and medical resources at our disposal to pursue your case through mediation, arbitration or trial.
