Birth Injury

$10.2 Million

A mother in labor arrived at a hospital and over the course of labor, began experiencing unusual contractions known to cause fetal harm. These signs went unappreciated causing the infant to sustain an acute asphyxic event minutes before birth, and leaving her with significant brain damage.

Birth Injury

$9.6 Million

Attorneys William Crutchlow and Barry Eichen obtained a $9,600,000 settlement on Obstetrical Malpractice concerning a monochorionic pregnancy, in which the demise of twin B and a delay in the delivery of twin A resulted in severe brain damage to the surviving twin.

Wrongful Birth

$8.22 Million

A mother was at an increased risk of having a child with Down syndrome and required a targeted ultrasound, but the obstetrician only ordered a standard ultrasound. The standard ultrasound still showed a thickened nuchal fold (a sign of Down syndrome) but this ultrasound was misinterpreted by the radiologist leading to the condition going unnoticed until birth.

Birth Injury

$4.85 Million

A child sustained mild Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy as a result of Defendant obstetric doctor’s failure to recognize fetal distress on the fetal monitor while the infant’s mother was in labor. Defendant alleged that the fetal strips did not show fetal distress and even if they did, the doctor’s delay was not significant enough to cause the injury. The parents were awarded $4.85M as a result of this negligence.
