16 Apr Ricky K. Patel & FPJL Secure Record-Breaking Settlement for Twins with Cerebral Palsy
Our Firm recently obtained a record-breaking settlement in a birth injury case on behalf of our clients whose twin girls suffer from cerebral palsy as a result of medical negligence. FPJL Partner, Ricky K. Patel Esq. handled the case from the onset. Our clients went to the hospital to have their twin girls delivered. The mother was in labor for several hours before finally giving birth. During that time, there were indications that the babies were going through periods of distress. After birth, it was determined that both twins were deprived of oxygen while still in the uterus long enough to develop severe cerebral palsy. Due to the amount of time that the twins were deprived of oxygen, one of the girls now suffers from multiple absent seizures on a daily basis while the other girl must use a feeding tube to receive nutrition. Six years ago, we filed a lawsuit against the hospital and the obstetrician due to the hospital’s failure to recognize signs of distress; have staff on hand that knew how to address the issue once the staff was aware; and perform an emergency C-section.
Serious conditions like cerebral palsy are often associated with preventable mistakes made by medical professionals during pregnancy and childbirth. Unfortunately, these mistakes can have far-reaching and life-altering consequences for victims and their families. Our firm stands by our clients, regardless of how long justice takes. After 6 years of litigation, we were able to obtain a settlement that will make an enormous difference for our clients and allow for the provision of adequate medical care and treatment for the twins for the rest of their lives.
