- Settlement: $4.5 Million
- Practice Areas: Medical Malpractice, Labor & Delivery, Birth Injury, Negligent Delivery, Forceps
After years of exhaustive research and thousands of hours of work, the firm settled a case involving complex issues of medical malpractice.
In an especially tragic case, a newborn infant’s neck was broken during a forceps delivery. After years of persistent investigation and thorough research, the firm was able to establish clear evidence of negligence by the obstetrician who was responsible for the horrible injuries to the infant and devastating consequences for the entire family.
While no amount of money could make the family whole, after the firm meticulously prepared every detail for trial, the Bergen County Superior Court approved a $4.5 million settlement on March 22, 1996.
