Settlement for a Client Whose Infant Suffered Irreversible Brain Damage Due to Medical Negligence

In this case, our client was a four–month–old baby girl who, back in January 1999, was taken to the hospital after her mother noticed that she had come down with irritability and a fever. The physicians who looked at her failed to diagnose that she had bacterial meningitis, an infection of the brain. They simply sent the sick infant home.

Within just 12 hours of returning home, however, the infant developed a brain injury as well as cerebral palsy. A lifetime of damage –– easily preventable. An utter tragedy.

We at Malman Law worked with our team of medical experts and attorneys to figure out what happened, and we proved that the failure to diagnose the baby’s illness led directly to her lifelong brain injuries and palsy. Although we did collect a $6,000,000.00 dollar settlement for our client; unfortunately, no amount of money can really replace the functions she lost as a result of the negligence.
