Medical Malpractice - Infant Brain Injury
Prior to trial, WRSMH attorney, Jason Rubin, obtained a $2.75 million settlement in a medical malpractice case involving injuries sustained by an infant at birth, which lead to his death six years later. During the course of the infant's delivery, there was evidence of maternal uterine hyper-stimulation which was not recognized by the attending physician. Plaintiff alleged that Pitocin should have been discontinued, which would have prevented injury to the fetus. The infant plaintiff sustained a severe hypoxic insult and neurologic injury and required twenty-four hour care. He died at six years of age from complications of his brain injury.
