Multimillion Dollar Verdicts and Settlements
Our firm has secured multimillion dollar verdicts and settlements for the parents and children whose lives are affected by OBGYN malpractice. This includes $20.8 million for a boy who has cerebral palsy as the result of a delayed C-Section. The baby suffered fetal asphyxia while in the womb. Standard of care provides that doctors perform a C-section when fetal distress is indicated on the fetal monitoring strips. The decision to perform a Cesarean delivery needs to be made in a timely manner and then acted upon quickly.
Our firm handles only a small number of cases at any one time, ensuring each client receives personalized attention. Our success is rooted in the way we approach each injured client.
Birth asphyxia is a common cause of cerebral palsy. Important steps can be taken to prevent asphyxia. These steps include turning the mother to another side, giving the mother oxygen, or performing an emergency C-section. Complications to the mother can arise during a C-section, including uterine rupture and hemorrhage. If you or your baby was injured because of a failure to perform a C-section, contact our firm to discuss your concerns.
