$5 Million Settlement for C-Section Delay

Ten years after joining Blume Donnelly, Carol Forte has won a second $5 million victory for Blume Donnelly clients. Both cases involved severely brain damaged children.
In this medical malpractice case, the structured settlement ensures the lifetime care of a child severely brain damaged as the result of a C-section delay.
Forte represented the mother on behalf of the child who is now eight years old.
The medical negligence lawsuit was filed four years ago against Dr. Irene Magran, a former OB/GYN resident at Monmouth Medical Center. Despite the fact that a fetal monitor indicated fetal distress, Dr. Magran waited over an hour to perform the necessary C-section delivery.
