Backed By Record Setting Results
Since 2018, our firm has also twice broken the California record for largest medical malpractice recoveries with two record birth injury settlements (California imposes a cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice claims).
Examples of our birth and neonatal injury results:
- $17 million birth injury settlement over brain damage in pregnancy – the largest present value medical malpractice settlement in California history (2019).
- $14 million settlement over neonatal brain injury. At the time, this was the largest medical malpractice settlement in California (2018).
- $11.4 million settlement over inadequate monitoring and failure to timely detect distress, resulting in brain injury and cerebral palsy. Largest birth injury settlement in CA at the time (2010).
- $11 million for premature triplets who suffered neonatal blindness injuries due to retinopathy providers were alleged to have failed to diagnose. This was the largest settlement of its type in the history of Hawaii (2000).
- $10 million settlement for birth injuries resulting in spastic quadriplegia and cognitive deficits. It was alleged that doctors failed to promptly deliver when fetal monitoring showed potential problems. This was a record birth injury settlement in the state it was obtained.
- $8.9 million verdict in Federal District Court of Hawaii for a child injured due to improper labor management. At the time, this was the largest medical malpractice award in the Ninth Circuit (1985).
