Mr. Molinari represented the family and estate of a 39-year-old woman who was seven months pregnant when she was involved in a head-on collision with a work van. She suffered severe abdominal trauma and placental abruption that required an emergency C-section delivery of her child. Her daughter was successfully delivered but died several hours later due to the traumatic placental abruption and severe hypoxia (lack of oxygen). There was no provable conscious pain and suffering for the child and the mother’s physical injuries were relatively minor. The recovery was for the emotional distress of the mom in losing her daughter under these tragic circumstances.
