Attorney Jim Reed represented the family of a little boy who was deprived of oxygen at birth and suffered permanent brain damage (cerebral palsy). This case involved the same hospital and several of the same nurses in the previous $2 million settlement. Sadly, we were shocked to learn that despite the passage of several years since the first case, the nurses had received no additional training in fetal heart rate monitoring, which is critical to the safe delivery of babies. We were dumbfounded: how can a hospital continue to deliver babies when its staff is not properly trained?
Initially the lawyers for the hospital and doctors denied any medical errors caused the child’s injuries, but after we hired experts who exposed MANY medical mistakes, their tune changed.
