Baby’s Injury at Birth Results in Medical Malpractice Award of 19.3 Million

Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) February 9, 2017 - Parents of a newborn daughter with severe brain damage filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging negligence in the baby’s delivery.

A Pennsylvania hospital and a local doctor had to pay $19.3 million to settle a medical malpractice lawsuit filed by the parents of a brain damaged baby. The settlement agreement set aside $9.05 million in a special account to care for the child and another $2 million was paid to the child’s mother.

The lawsuit, filed in 2014, alleged the physician was negligent in delivering the couple’s baby in 2012, by failing to immediately perform an emergency C-section when the mother showed clear signs of placental abruption — a medical condition in which a placental detachment deprives the baby of oxygen. The baby’s extensive brain damage left the child unable to feed herself, walk or talk.

Moving forward to handle such a catastrophic brain injury is emotionally and financially draining. Filing, fighting, winning a medical malpractice case or obtaining a settlement, is a complex and drawn out process. Not many people have access to limitless funding and victims may be overwhelmed with medical, funeral, and burial expenses, along with other financial commitments. Litigation funding allows a plaintiff to wait for a fair and equitable settlement without being pressured into an early settlement.

“Plaintiffs with a lawsuit cash advance have access to non-recourse funding, meaning if they lose their case, they do not have to repay the pre-settlement funding. The litigation funding company only gets paid back if there is a successful recovery of damages in the case,” said Daren Monroe, Litigation Funding Corporation representative.
