Medical errors sadly aren’t limited to adults.
Children can be affected by medical negligence as can unborn children.
Mistakes can be made during prenatal care that can have residual effects on your unborn child that can cause permanent damage or worse result in a loss of pregnancy.

Pediatric and Prenatal Malpractice
These forms of malpractice can happen at any time and could cause permanent damage to the child in question or result in their untimely death. As devastating as these cases can be they are also quite complicated to handle. Information tends to be withheld more with these cases and sometimes things aren’t properly explained to the parents. More so, emotions are high in these cases so things need to be handled delicately at times. Dr. Gleeson understands this and aims to use his vast medical experience with his legal knowledge to help families get through these tough times.
Dr. Gleeson can help with cases involving delayed or missed diagnosis of pediatric cancer, incidences of Hirschsprung’s disease, intussusception, cardiac problems, post-op errors, medication errors, problems with anesthesia, mistakes during surgery, and other medical negligence claims.
