Medical malpractice attorney Evan Goldberg of Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman in New York City recently secured a recovery of $2.65 million for a baby born with brain damage as a result of obstetrical mismanagement (see index #350306/2009 Bronx County, New York.).

During her pregnancy, the baby’s mother experienced hypertension and diabetic health concerns, but her physicians failed to properly monitor those conditions. During labor it became apparent that the baby was not receiving enough oxygen, but the physicians chose not to perform a caesarian section (C-section) as most doctors would under the circumstances. As result, the baby was deprived of oxygen, born with brain damage and later diagnosed with autism.

The defense claimed that the physicians followed proper procedures before and during the birth. Additionally, they questioned the cause of the child’s developmental delays, claiming that the subsequent diagnosis of autism could not be linked to oxygen deprivation at birth.

Having previously published on that issue in 2003, Combating the Developmental Delay Defense for Children, Mr. Goldberg was well able to counter the defense’s arguments and obtained compensation for the disabled child and her family.

“Evan achieved a fair resolution in this matter, and assured that this young child would receive the medical attention and therapies she requires for the balance of her lifetime,” said managing partner Jeff Lichtman, of Trolman, Glaser &Lichtman, P.C.
