Birth Malpractice Settles During Trial For $2,650,000

After suffering from two previous miscarriages, a 37-year-old woman from Bloomingburg, NY, was at risk for delivering pre-maturely because of her incomplete cervix. Since she had a high-risk pregnancy her OBGYN should have performed a routine procedure to support the cervix and the failure to do so resulted in a premature birth at 22 weeks. Unfortunately due to the doctor’s failures, the child was born with significant problems. The doctor refused to agree to settle the case until the middle of the trial. The case was handled by Managing Partner Andrew Finkelstein with co-counsel.
