Verdicts & Settlements

$2,625,000 Settlement - NY Medical Malpractice. Erb's Palsy. Mother was diagnosed as suffering from gestational diabetes and the fetus was known to be approximately 9 pounds, 6 ounces. Despite these facts a vaginal delivery was attempted. At the time of delivery the newborn's shoulder became stuck behind the cervix of the mother. Rather than perform a c-section the obstetrician utilized an improper delivery technique and a brachial plexus injury known as an Erb's Palsy resulted. The settlement reflects a structure to the infant paid for with slightly more than half the settlement proceeds.

$10,500,000 Verdict - New York Medical Malpractice. Cerebral Palsy. Child suffered severe brain damage as a result of medical malpractice during prenatal care. Physician noted the likelihood of pre-mature birth yet no treatment was rendered prior to delivery. Case was tried by current NY Oshman & Mirisola attorney John Langell.
