Negligence leads to Medical Malpractice case after Newborn death

The personal injury attorneys of Lipkin & Apter represented a family who suffered great loss due to the negligence of their healthcare provider. In this medical malpractice case, an infant was born with profound, systemic medical problems, surviving only 3 months, after the obstetrician/gynecologist who delivered her failed to perform a timely cesarean section.

Successful Resolution: $600,000

Our medical malpractice attorneys brought suit against the hospital. We were able to prove from fetal heart monitor strips that the baby suffered from a lack of oxygen in vitro and should have been delivered by C-section 40 minutes earlier. The family settled for $600,000.
