$2.2 Million

Settlement in Suit Over Baby's Botched Delivery

The Case: Yarborough Applegate recently negotiated a $2.2 million settlement for a young woman whose baby was born with brain damage and later died. The doctor at the center of the case lied during her deposition, claiming she waited to deliver the baby by C-section because the 19-year-old mother withdrew her consent to have the operation. The lawsuit alleged that the doctor and other medical providers involved in the birth waited too long to deliver the baby, all while his brain was being deprived of blood and oxygen. He died in January 2014, at 18 months of age.

The Outcome: The doctor and her lawyers initially contended that she did nothing wrong. However, the doctor’s insurer paid $1.2 million and the hospital’s insurer paid an additional $1 million to settle the suit on May 8.
