A 6.3 million dollar settlement was reached in a birth injury case in the Supreme Court, New York County by trial attorneys Jeff S. Korek, Cyd Korek and partner Michael A Fruhling. The lawsuit was brought on behalf of a child born with cerebral palsy as a result of a failure to timely perform a caesarian section on a new mother within the prescribed time by a relatively new obstetrician/gynecologist at a local hospital. GLK and attorneys Korek, Fruhling and Korek were able to prove that the newborn’s hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) resulted from a failure to properly address the ominous signs that were being recorded on the baby’s fetal monitoring strips. While the money recovered can never fully compensate the family and child for a lifetime of hardship GLK made sure to collect every penny of the physicians’ medical liability insurance policy before resolving the case.
