$6.3 Million for Michigan Twins with Cerebral Palsy & Developmental Delays from Failure to Admit, Failure to Stop Premature Birth & a Delayed Emergency C-Section
The award-winning attorneys at ABC Law Centers secured a $2.25 million settlement (total annuity payout: $6.3 million) for a child injured by delayed emergency C-section and negligent care.
Plaintiff was pregnant with twins and found to be at risk for early labor. She went to the Emergency Room twice in her third trimester with complaints of contractions; the first time she was discharged, the second time she was admitted to the hospital for monitoring. Due to problems with the babies’ heart rates, doctors made the decision to perform an emergency Cesarean section. Despite mounting problems and the rule that an emergency C-section should be performed in less than 30 minutes, doctors waited one hour and 40 minutes to perform the operation, causing oxygen deprivation to their brains and resulting in cerebral palsy in one twin and developmental delays in the other.

About Our Verdicts and Settlements Calculations
The smaller sum we list on our site is the total value of the settlement or verdict. The larger sum is the total value of the settlement or verdict plus the expected lifetime yield of an annuity purchased with a portion of the settlement or verdict. This larger sum is the maximum value, because it takes into account the lifetime expected value of the annuity.
