Reiter & Walsh asserted in this very difficult case that the mother’s sickle cell disease, brain abscess requiring cranial surgery during pregnancy, seizures, and multiple hospitalizations during pregnancy placed her in a high-risk category. Despite being high-risk, staff and doctors managing her care did not communicate or follow-up on abnormal test results.
One such result revealed that the baby was not growing proportionally to gestational age (intrauterine growth restriction, IUGR). http://www.youtube.com/
Attorney Jesse M. Reiter, co-founder and senior partner in the firm, said, “We are extremely pleased to have been able to win this sizeable settlement for our client. While no amount of money can make our client whole, we’re happy that the award will help restore some peace of mind for the family and help with the costs of medical care, therapies and more. This is a devastating situation that no family should have to endure.”
