Failure To Diagnose Hyperbilirubinemia – Quadriplegia

Our neurologic injury specialists obtained a major confidential settlement having a present cash value in seven figures on behalf of a 9-year-old boy whose hyperbilirubinemia went undiagnosed during the first week of his life. As a result, he developed spasticity and partial paralysis and requires daily attendant care. Our neurological injury attorney team brought a claim against the hospital where the child was born, as well as against the child’s pediatrician, claiming that both ignored signs and symptoms of developing AB-O blood incompatibility. Walkup lawyers recovered economic damages, a substantial portion of which was dedicated to annuities to offset the cost of ongoing medical care and to provide for the child’s ongoing attendant care, special education, occupational therapy, and other needs.
