Negligence Leads to Baby’s Death

Medical Malpractice Settlement for Seven Figures


Our pregnant client, then past her projected delivery date, presented to the hospital in labor. Despite the fact that fetal monitoring revealed her baby was in distress, our client’s labor was permitted to proceed. The baby was delivered vaginally with the umbilical cord tightly wrapped around her abdomen three times.

Although the infant was successfully resuscitated immediately after delivery, testing revealed that no brain activity was present. Our clients’ baby passed away shortly after life support was withdrawn. Rosen Louik & Perry settled this case for seven figures.
