Failure of Nurses and Midwife to Direct Expectant Mother to Hospital Results in Injury to Child

$1,750,000

Litigation Type - Birth Injuries

Client Injury - Neurological Abnormalities

Our clients were a family whose child suffered a brain injury from asphyxia sustained shortly before his birth. The claim was that two nurses and a midwife gave improper advice and care to the child's mother on three separate occasions during a 12-hour period prior to the mother being taken to a hospital for delivery. The child has neurological abnormalities.

SiebenCarey settled the case for $1,750,000; part of this recovery was used to purchase an annuity which will make payments to a Special Needs Trust.
