Represented a three-year old boy from North Dakota who suffered a severe neurological injury when his skull was fractured during delivery

The child’s mother was in labor for several days, and the hospital’s nursing staff failed to keep the obstetrician and nurse midwife informed of dangerous changes in the baby’s heart rate during the final hours of labor. This delay led to a crisis and emergency cesarean section, during which the fracture occurred. The case involved complex claims against the obstetrician, the nurse midwife, and the nursing staff of the hospital. The firm successfully settled the claims against the obstetrician and nurse midwife for the limits of their insurance, $3 million. The claims against the hospital staff settled shortly before trial for an additional $1 million, providing life-long resources for the little boy and his family.
