Texas Birth Injury Law Firm
In 1998, Robert J. Talaska established the Talaska Law Firm in Houston. Nationally recognized for its expertise with birth injury cases, the firm has represented clients throughout Texas and in states nationwide.
The firm consists of Mr. Talaska, along with his team of experienced attorneys and staff, who concentrate their practice on legal services for parents whose children are victims of medical malpractice.
Medical mistakes happen every day during childbirth. The unfortunate outcome leaves parents with concerns not only about the present but, perhaps more importantly, about their child’s future. Frequently, parents face the need for a child’s ongoing medical care, which burdens them with exorbitant medical costs. In severe cases, assistive care becomes a lifelong endeavor. The attorneys at the Talaska Law Firm have helped many children and their families who are victims of medical malpractice by collecting millions of dollars from negligent doctors, hospitals and other healthcare professionals responsible for birth injuries.
Sources of Medical Malpractice
Our attorneys have represented numerous families seeking compensation from a variety of negligent sources, such as:
- Managed care organizations
- Family physicians
At the Talaska Law Firm in Houston, our attorneys seek compensation to provide for the necessary medical and attendant care children injured at birth may require for the rest of their lives. Our attorneys also pursue compensation for mental anguish, pain and suffering, including impairment and disfigurement.
Investigation, Resources and Case Preparation
When parents raise questions about their child’s condition or development, obstetricians and pediatricians often do not provide straightforward answers. Families have every right to know why their child has been injured and the Talaska Law Firm finds the answers.
Our personal injury attorneys conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the pregnancy, labor and delivery, and physical state of the newborn. To carry out the medical-legal investigation, we obtain and analyze medical records to determine if mistakes were made during the child’s critical prenatal, labor and delivery and newborn stages. If the case is meritorious, Mr. Talaska will work with highly qualified and experienced doctors to prove that a baby’s serious injuries were preventable and that appropriate medical care was not given.
Protecting Clients’ Rights
Our law firm has developed the expertise, resources and knowledge to successfully analyze, litigate and present complex birth injury cases to a jury. We realize the extent of emotional and financial hardships families experience when their child has been permanently injured.
We are a law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of children injured by medical malpractice during the birth process. Over the past few decades, Robert Talaska, Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law, has been personally successful in obtaining substantial verdicts, settlements and awards on behalf of our clients.
Our Focus on Birth Injury
Cerebral palsy, brachial plexus (Erb’s palsy), Group-B strep infections and other birth injuries are the Talaska Law Firm’s primary areas of practice. Birth injury is a complex and difficult area of law. Robert Talaska’s legal expertise and passionate commitment to justice for victims who suffer birth injury through medical negligence have proved to be a winning combination for many families seeking justice.
Our Houston law firm limits its representation to victims of medical malpractice and their families. We do not represent insurance companies, HMOs, doctors, hospitals, or other healthcare providers.
