Medical Malpractice Cases
$3.5 million recovery for the family of child injured during birth
A baby was born with a twist in his intestines known as a malrotation, apparent through his persistent bile vomit, a clear sign of the medical emergency. Malrotation requires surgery to untwist before a perforation in the bowel occurs.

Two years later, the child had to undergo a bowel transplant as a result of the delays.
