Highest birth injury settlement in state’s history for delayed emergency C-Section.

Our birth injury lawyers handled this case in a middle America state west of the Mississippi. This is believed to be the highest birth injury settlement in the state's history. During the labor process, there was an abruption of the placenta causing significant evidence of fetal distress on the fetal monitoring strips. An emergency C-Section was called but not accomplished until about 40 minutes after there was evidence the baby was in trouble. We contended that the hospital and the doctor had all the personnel present necessary to do an emergency C-Section and that the baby should have been delivered more expeditiously under the circumstances. The defense contended that even in the best of circumstances a certain amount of time must transpire before an emergency C-Section can be accomplished in a community hospital setting. The case was settled for the full policy limits of the physician.
