$4.48 Million for Medical Malpractice Due to Failure to Perform Timely C-Section

Our medical malpractice client was admitted into the hospital six days earlier than her due date diagnosed as suffering from preeclampsia. Labor was induced and despite the fact that the fetal monitor showed increasing signs of fetal distress a cesarean section was ordered and then canceled. When the cesarean section was again ordered it was not until nine hours later that it was performed. Our client’s daughter was born with no respiration and a very low heart rate. As she developed it became apparent that the baby suffered from cognitive defects as well as severe hearing impairment and could only walk with braces. The parties settled before jury selection and agreed to pay $4,475,000 with an eventual payment to our client of over $37 million.
