$11 Million Settlement - Birth Injury

Cook County - November 2003

Attorneys Timothy Richardson and Paul Salzetta - In November of 2003, a 38-week-old baby girl was born at Chicago area hospital with neonatal depression (Apgars of 3 and 5). No arterial cord gas was obtained. The plaintiff alleged the labor and delivery team negligently monitored the fetal heart tracings, failed to properly interpret the fetal heart tracings, and improperly continued with the administration of Pitocin in the presence of non-reassuring tracings and uterine hyperstimulation.
