Client Injury - Death and Brain Injury

SiebenCarey represented a child and her parents in a case in which the mother's pregnancy was not properly managed. The mother had an ultrasound at 13 weeks into her pregnancy, which showed twins, but was interpreted as being a single fetus. It was not discovered that there were twins until the mother was in the hospital to deliver the babies. Proper steps were not taken to handle a twin pregnancy. As a result, one of the children was stillborn and the other lived but suffered a brain injury.
