Settlement After Lack of Oxygen Leads to Infant Death

Attorney Mark A. Brown negotiated a $1.65 million settlement on behalf of the parents who lost a baby due to medical malpractice on the part of a midwife and delivery nurses.

Midwife and Nurses Failed to Get Help

The accident occurred during a difficult labor when the midwife and nurses failed to recognize that the baby was suffering from distress. As a result, they failed to involve an obstetrician, who would have evaluated the situation for a caesarian section and assisted with the birth.

The infant suffered brain damage from a lack of oxygen during labor and died a few days later.
