Case Summary: Medical Malpractice / Death of Viable Fetus

| ,

A woman in her mid-twenties was admitted to a local hospital for the delivery of her second child whom she had been carrying for the past 39 weeks. Hospital personnel hooked the woman up to a fetal monitor machine. However, the personnel failed to watch the fetal monitor readings, and left the woman and her husband alone for the next 45 minutes. The oxygen supply to the fetus was being slowly cut off because the umbilical cord was compressed inside the woman’s birth canal. The full developed fetus died. We sued the hospital for medical malpractice. We retained experts in obstetrics and neonatal pathology to prove that the medical staff failed to provide mother and child with appropriate medical care, and to prove that the fetus died as a sole result of the medical staff’s negligence. We settled the case in the middle of the jury trial for nearly one million dollars.
