The award-winning lawyers at ABC Law Centers secured a $1.125 million settlement (total annuity payout: $4.2 million) for a child injured by the improper use of a vacuum extractor. Plaintiff was scheduled for an induction of labor because she was 40 weeks and three days pregnant. There were problems during the labor and the attending doctor decided to use a vacuum extractor to assist in delivering the baby. He allowed a first-year resident to perform the procedure, despite problems with the baby’s heart rate and the fact that the resident had a poor track record and no experience using such a tool in a delivery. The vacuum extractor was improperly used, and the baby suffered bleeding deep inside the brain. Now 10 years old, the child has cerebral palsy and severe seizure disorder as a result of the injuries he suffered at birth. The award-winning cerebral palsy lawyers at Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers obtained $1.125 million (total annuity payout: $4.2 million) for this child who has lifelong problems as a result of the vacuum extractor misuse that caused bleeding in the baby’s brain (intracranial hemorrhages).

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.
