$8.0 Million for Birth Injury

Record settlement for a neonatal/birth injury—baby suffered severe spastic quadraparesis and relatively retained cognitive ability.

Our birth injury and neonatal attorneys settled this case for a record amount. This child was born normally. In the first 24 hours, she was found not breathing by a nurse and a code was called for resuscitation. During the resuscitation process, the child was ventilated and the ventilator equipment was later changed. The equipment change involved an improper ventilator tube with no exhaust valve. The child was blown up like a balloon and both lungs were ruptured. The child was immediately diagnosed with bilateral ruptured lungs. The lungs were re-inflated and the child resuscitated again. The baby ended up with severe spastic quadraparesis and relatively retained cognitive ability. We contended the initial nurse missed the symptoms of the child's impending apnea and failed to respond promptly to the child's lack of breathing. We also contended that the respiratory therapist should not have placed a ventilator tube that had no exhaust valve. The defendants admitted the tube was improper but contended that damage was done in the first apnic episode while the baby was in the mother's hands and before the nurse came into the room. Our research indicates this result is the top neonatal/birth injury settlement/verdicts in the state.
