Causes And Results Of Oxygen Deprivation
$450K Settlement for the Wrongful Death of an Infant
In one birth trauma case, I represented a mother who awoke one morning and recognized that she was experiencing labor pains. When she arrived at the hospital, however, the staff failed to take prompt action. She had to wait 20 to 30 minutes to reach the labor and delivery floor. Once there, it took the doctors 18 minutes to deliver the child by cesarean section. The infant was severely brain damaged and only lived five days.
