$12,085,000 Settlement for Failure to Timely Deliver an Infant

Child suffers severe brain damage and cannot speak, walk or talk and must be tube fed

Kathleen Kettles recently obtained a court order approving the settlement of $12,085,000. This is a case involving the failure to timely deliver an infant to a first-time mother and resulting in severe brain damage to the child who is now 6 years old. This child cannot speak, walk or talk and must be tube fed. Her parents are completely devoted, but their day to day existence is filled with dealing doctor's appointments, emergency visits, outside therapies and managing or providing her child's need for extensive nursing services. "I am truly in awe of this family and despite the heartache of having a child this disabled, it has been a joy to work for them. This settlement will lessen the burden on this incredible family."

Kathy heads the Medical Malpractice team. Though a practicing attorney for almost 28 years, she was an RN for ten years prior to going to law school.

During the litigation, Kathy worked extensively with well known, respected experts in the fields of obstetrics, maternal fetal medicine, neonatology, pediatric neurology, pediatric neuroradiology and a life care planner to prepare the case for trial. It is this attention to detail which results in an extremely favorable settlement for her clients.

"When I was a nurse, I often felt powerless to really help my patients, but as a nurse attorney, I get to help secure a child's future and there is no greater feeling of satisfaction."
