Bringing your new child into the world should be the happiest day of your life.


However, when something goes wrong in the delivery room you or your child could be left with serious injuries or worse. Birth injuries can result from negligent care, problems during delivery, or improper care to the newborn after delivery. These problems can cause a number of issues including birth defects and death. If you or someone you care about has suffered from childbirth errors or other errors in the delivery room, you need an attorney who has the knowledge and the experience to handle your claim in the most thorough way possible. Dr. Michael Gleeson, ESQ. is an attorney with a background in medicine that allows him to properly analyze your claim and get you the justice you deserve.

Dr. Gleeson’s Offer of Hope and Help

When you’re looking for the best attorney to handle your childbirth error or error in the delivery room, you should look no further than Dr. Gleeson. Besides being a successful attorney, he is Board Certified in general surgery and is a member of multiple prestigious organizations in the medical and legal fields including the American Board of Surgery and the American Association for Justice.

After finishing his surgical training, Dr. Gleeson worked as a general surgeon and held the position of chief surgical resident at Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx in 1989. During his time in the medical field, Dr. Gleeson made a name for himself by performing some of the earliest outpatient surgeries to remove organs like the gallbladder and the appendix. These procedures were relatively unheard of before Dr. Gleeson and similar surgeons put their reputations on the line to perform these new procedures. He went even further by designing the instruments that are still in use for those procedures. Over the years, he collected the experience and knowledge that allows him to properly evaluate medical malpractice cases in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area.

Once he decided to step away from the medical world and into the legal industry, Dr. Gleeson decided to attend Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, California. He earned his law degree and went on to pass the Bar exam. From there, he worked his way to open up his current practice. In that capacity, Dr. Gleeson uses his medical background to evaluate cases including those involving childbirth errors and errors in the delivery room that have led to injuries, birth defects, and sometimes the loss of life. He uses his expertise to quickly find issues in a person’s medical records that show some type of medical negligence that led to their claim. He can use his resources to link up with other experts when needed but can also analyze cases on his own without soliciting third-parties to define medical industry jargon or to decipher technical tests and files. This is why Dr. Gleeson is the best choice when selecting an attorney to handle your delivery room error claim.

Possible Errors in the Delivery Room

These errors in practice can leave the mother and child hurt, cause developmental delays, and in the worst instances end up in the loss of life of the mother, the child, or both. While the damage can’t be undone, a skilled professional can analyze the medical reports and consult with other experts to figure out what could’ve happened that would’ve prevented the damage. This is where Dr. Gleeson can help. Besides his aforementioned accomplishments, Dr. Gleeson also has experience in obstetrics thanks to his time training in an obstetrical program in New York City where he was involved in countless deliveries. He has performed operations on newborns and understands what needs to be done in all instances in order to get the job done properly without any medical negligence.
