$900,000 was recovered for a child who suffered from medical malpractice during his birth. It is alleged that there was a lack of oxygen to the child and an alternative Caesarean delivery should have been administered. As a result, the client suffers brain damage and is developing more slowly than other children his age; he began to walk at 17 months and began speaking at age 2. He has since needed extra help with regard to developmental therapy and nursing care and finds difficulty telling stories at times.
Our firm worked with another firm to reach this settlement.
