3 Million Plus Settlement Recovered for the Child With Brain Damage From a Birth Injury

Over 3 million plus lifetime medical care for the child with brain damage from a birth injury in a Bronx Hospital

Best Lawyers: Edward Gersowitz, Jeff Korek and Michael Fruhling - PartnersGersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. recently obtained a settlement of over 3 million dollars, plus lifetime medical care for a child, in a highly contested birth related medical malpractice action while in the discovery phase, and prior to being placed on the trial calendar, at the Supreme Court in Bronx County. The case involved our client’s labor and delivery at a major New York City hospital using vacuum extraction. The child suffered brain damage, oxygen deprivation and other major developmental delays as a result of the actions of the treating obstetrician, which Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. was able to prove was caused by improper management of the child’s delivery, failure to perform a C-section, and initiating delivery with severe metabolic disturbances. Our office conducted depositions of all the treating nurses and physicians at the hospital and consulted with several medical experts in order to prosecute and prove the family’s case and ultimately attain the just compensation they deserve.
