Stephen Brzezinski- Birth Injury Lawyer

I have had the opportunity and pleasure of representing health care providers across the United States for almost 30 years in medical malpractice and birth injury cases. I have also presented at national and local conferences over 70 times to help educate these professionals and promote patient safety to help prevent birth trauma through education. My birth trauma experience has granted me first-hand knowledge of the repercussions of human error. Medical malpractice and birth injuries occur when professionals make mistakes and errors in judgment resulting in harm. The mantra of many plaintiff attorneys is that the hospitals and insurance companies don’t care. However, in my experience that is not true. It takes a skillful, dedicated approach to identify negligence and then reach a successful outcome. I will work with you to obtain accountability and change.
