$8.9 Million Settlement Reached for Infant Who Suffered Brain Damage During Mother’s Labor

Medical Malpractice Case Results

Partners Ken Rothweiler and Daniel Jeck resolved a medical malpractice action in Philadelphia just prior to trial arising from the failure by Obstetricians at a local hospital to recognize and appreciate a pattern of non-reassuring fetal heart rate tracings that warned of significant fetal cord occlusion or blockage in a timely manner. As a result of the failure to perform an expedited delivery, our client suffered severe and permanent neurological injuries from hypoxia (lack of oxygen) sustained towards the end of her mother’s labor.
