Case Conclusion Date: 10.20.2011
Practice Area: Birth injury
Outcome: $2 Million Settlement
Description: Pregnant with twins, the mother delivered Twin A without a problem, but was given a C-section dose of anesthesia before delivering Twin B, even though no C-section was performed. This caused maternal hypotension, non-reassuring fetal heart tones, and a delay in delivery of Twin B. Twin B suffers from mild developmental delays and speech deficits. Twin A is uninjured.
