THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS


At Brock Medical Malpractice Law PC, the focus is solely on medical malpractice litigation and representing individuals who have acquired injuries at the hands of health care providers. At the foundation of our medical malpractice services is our understanding of the strategies and considerations which are most important in prosecuting medical malpractice cases. We have the comprehensive knowledge of the legal and medical issues, and we have access to hundreds of top experts in a wide range of health care disciplines who assist us in achieving successful outcomes for our clients. Medical malpractice litigation is extremely complex and presents challenges distinct from personal injury law. We have the required experience, knowledge and resources to carry a client’s case to a successful resolution. For more information, please contact Gayle Brock at (705) 739-4022.


Promoting mental health and 
workplace productivity 

Psychiatric and stress-related illness and disability are the fastest growing claims areas. Expert disability management promotes early work return and improves morale and profit.  HR/OH&S reviews, IMEs and Back-to-Work counselling provide highly useful tools for change. Sexual Harassment and Workplace Violence are special issues to address.  Organizational review, Development of Workplace ⦿ Safeplace programs and Speedy Access to Forensic Evaluations help make work safe, keep employees secure and reduce costly litigation. Multidisciplinary mental health promotion, team building, critical incident debriefing and stress management training produce results
