$2.0 Million Brain Damage & Paralysis

Confidential Settlement for quadriplegic brain damage injuries to a 20 day-old child.

Three days after birth, a male infant presented to a pediatric clinic. The parents complained that the baby was very yellow. The physician said the baby was only yellow to the mid-chest and sent him home with instructions to call if the jaundice became worse. The jaundice did not become worse—it stayed the same. Three weeks later the child was admitted with severed hyperbilirubinemia and kernicterus. It was too late to avert the brain injury. Plaintiff contended that the baby should not have been sent home without either obtaining a bilirubin level or setting a return visit within 48 hours so that the doctor could determine for himself that the jaundice was receding. The defense contended that with jaundice to the mid-chest most children do fine and it was extremely unusual for a child of this age to have his biliruben significantly increase for no known cause. The baby had significant quadriparesis and cognitive delay. The case was settled for the doctor’s full policy limits.
