After 17 years, the facts about a child who suffered severe brain damage at birth have finally come to light. Blume Donnelly associate Michael Zerres obtained a settlement of $535,000 after presenting evidence that the on-duty physician at a Northern New Jersey Hospital failed to recognize and notify the obstetrician that the child was in a breech position, which delayed the child’s delivery and caused his brain damage.
