Prenatal Negligence Case Awards $210,000 to Surviving Parents

Emergency room physicians were found negligent in an infant mortality case after repeatedly instructing a pregnant woman complaining of severe abdominal cramping not to come to the hospital until her water broke.

Despite direction from the hospital, the woman decided to present to the hospital anyway. Upon arrival, her child was born under emergency conditions, and delivered in a depressed condition.

Four days later, on Christmas Eve, 2001, the infant died.

Our Medical Malpractice attorneys settled the case prior to trial in favor of the plaintiff for $210,000.
