Award-Winning Michigan HIE Lawyers Obtained $1.95 Million for Child with Cerebral Palsy & Developmental Delays caused by Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

Michigan HIE lawyers discuss delayed C-section delivery, improper prenatal care & hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)The award-winning Michigan HIE lawyers at Reiter & Walsh obtained a $1.95 million settlement for a child injured by a physician’s failure to follow up on low amniotic fluid levels.

Plaintiff was just over 40 weeks pregnant. Six days before she delivered, testing showed significant decrease in amniotic fluid levels. The amniotic fluid level was still normal and other tests were normal. Plaintiff was sent home and told to follow up with her prenatal doctor, which she did. When she started having contractions and her water broke the next day, she rushed back to the hospital. The fetal monitor strips immediately showed severe abnormalities. Delivery by emergency C-section took 27 minutes from the time the fetal monitoring started. The baby suffered from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (lack of oxygen to the brain) and it was asserted that the significant decrease in amniotic fluid six days earlier, though still in a normal range, required further evaluation and follow-up within two or three days. The plaintiff-minor now suffers from cerebral palsy and developmental delays.
