Bottar Leone, PLLC partners Edward S. Leone and Anthony S. Bottar recently resolved a Syracuse birth injury lawsuit for $3,250,000.00 which, after investment in annuities, will provide the plaintiffs with nearly $9,000,000.00 in compensation should the infant plaintiff live to age 74.
Like most of the Firm’s New York birth injury lawsuits, the plaintiffs alleged that a group of medical defendants, including an obstetrician and a hospital (through its labor and delivery nurses and medical residents), were negligent in their collective (1) failure to diagnose fetal distress and (2) respond by performing a cesarean section before the baby suffered permanent brain damage, including spastic cerebral palsy, blindness and deafness.
Plaintiffs’ claims included allegations that the defendants: failed to properly monitor the plaintiff, did not appreciate a non-reassuring fetal heart rate pattern marked by prolonged decelerations and minimal variability, and negligently administered Pitocin (oxytocin) when it was contraindicated. As a result, the infant plaintiff was born hypoxic, acidotic, and with low APGAR scores.
