We Have Obtained Hundreds of Millions of Dollars For Our Clients

Birth Injury
$12.0 Million
A mother was given excessive Pitocin during labor which caused brain damage to her newborn child. Shortly after filing the lawsuit, the hospital and doctor offered $12 million to settle the case. This money will be used to take care of the child and give her as full a life as possible under the circumstances.
Birth Injury
$10.0 Million
A routine ultrasound taken just prior to her due date showed that the twins were in fetal distress and emergency procedures needed to be undertaken.

The hospital and doctor settled the case for $10 million.
