Medical Malpractice: $1,750,000 Settlement

After a 3 week jury trial in Supreme Court, New York County, the defendant physicians and a major Manhattan hospital agreed to settle a brain damaged baby case for $1,750,000. The five year old child was born prematurely at 30 weeks and suffers from cerebral palsy and developmental delays. Among the issues raised at trial included whether the mother had made complaints of abdominal pain due to a fall the day before delivery (the doctors and hospital denied that she had complained); and, whether medical treatment 36 hours earlier with tocolytics and corticosteroids would have arrested labor and/or accelerated fetal lung maturity sufficient to avoid the infant's injuries.
