Multi-million dollar settlement with east King County obstetrician and hospital

We have handled many cases involving brachial plexus injuries caused by damage to nerves in the neck and shoulder during mishandled births. These injuries can result in devastating life-long disability, including a limp or paralyzed arm. This particular case involved an infant born with permanent brain damage resulting from a brachial plexus injury sustained during a series of failed vacuum extraction attempts by the obstetrician. She also suffered permanent brain damage after a two-hour delay to perform a C-Section, even after realizing the baby’s oxygen supply was cut off. We successfully argued that the obstetrician and hospital staff were negligent in the delivery, and negotiated a settlement to provided funds for the child’s life-long treatment needs.
