HSPRD Partner Stacey Cischke will be speaking at the ACI’s 17th Annual Advanced Forum on Obstetric Malpractice Claims at the Union League in Philadelphia June 25-26, 2018.
Obstetric malpractice cases continue to result in massive verdicts, reaching amounts in excess of $100 million. Claims are evolving in response to advances in medical technology, which can increase the potential for errors in the delivery room. Furthermore, new emerging standards of care are leading to new malpractice claims.
Given these developments, it is essential that all those who are part of the obstetric malpractice continuum, including medical professionals, risk managers, insurance professionals, plaintiffs’ attorneys, and defense counsel, stay current on the latest claims and defense strategies and how they are impacting the practice.
Stacey Cischke is a Partner of Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym, Ltd. and a member of the firm’s medical malpractice and birth trauma defense teams. She has extensive experience in the representation of physicians, dentists and healthcare institutions. She represents several Chicago area teaching hospitals as well as individual physicians and practice groups. Ms. Cischke handles all aspects of litigation and has tried multiple medical malpractice cases to verdict.
Ms. Cischke also frequently presents to physicians and medical practice groups focusing on topics such as understanding the defense of birth injury cases, preparing for depositions, legal issues involving EMR’s and improving reliability in discovery responses. In addition to presentations for the firm’s clients, she has been invited by local and national healthcare and risk organizations to speak about a variety litigation issues, including e-discovery, litigation holds and incorporating principles of enterprise risk management into litigation strategy. She is the current President-Elect of the Chicago Healthcare Risk Managment Society, and a member of ASHRM.
