A Victory for the People of Colorado in Brown v. Long Romero
Members of the team at Leventhal Puga Braley P.C., Bruce Braley and Alex Wilschke, successfully argued a case before the Colorado Supreme Court on behalf of the firm’s clients in Brown v. Long Romero, 2021 CO 67. Our clients experienced the loss of their child at Denver Center for Birth and Wellness due to malpractice that had taken place during their infant’s labor and delivery. This ruling overturned a lower court’s decision regarding negligence claims against an employer and an employee.
An issue in the lower court was whether an employer can he held responsible for the negligent actions of an employee that they hired. The Arapahoe District Court in Colorado sided in the favor of the healthcare facility named in the case. The center had argued that the employee was performing her role adequately when the death of the infant had taken place.
The higher court reexamined our clients’ case and issued a ruling enforcing an employer’s responsibility to properly train those that they hire. This is a victory for the people of Colorado that holds corporate defendants accountable for their employees’ negligent conduct.
