$15,300,000.00 Verdict and Settlement – Wrongful Death

Danny T. died as the result of negligence. The details are confidential, but Danny's widow filed suit and received a multi-million-dollar verdict. That was, however, only the beginning. The defense appealed. Again, the widow won. Further litigation followed, including additional appeals. Attorney Brian Eisen worked relentlessly on this matter for several years. Eventually, his dogged persistence won out, and Danny's widow and family received a total award in excess of $15.3 million.

$10,600,000 Verdict – Spine Surgery Results in Quadriplegia

Libby Barnish was devastated when she was unable to move her legs after waking up from spine surgery. When two reputable law firms told her that it would be too difficult to prove that her injury was the result of medical negligence, she almost lost all hope. Then she came to the Eisen Law Firm.

$8,000,000 Million Settlement – Failure to Diagnose Fetal Distress Results in Uterine Rupture and Cerebral Palsy

James was delivered by Cesarean section after his mother’s uterus ruptured during labor. He was limp, blue, and not breathing. When the hospital’s “Code Pink” team could not resuscitate James, a pediatrician was summoned. By the time the pediatrician arrived, however, James had sustained permanent brain damage, ultimately resulting in cerebral palsy. The Eisen Law Firm filed suit, claiming that the obstetrician overlooked fetal monitoring strips that showed fetal distress before the uterine rupture occurred, and that the hospital failed to call the pediatrician promptly.

The Eisen Law Firm assembled a highly-qualified team of experts in almost a dozen different medical specialties from around the country in order to prove that James’ injuries were the direct result negligence. Ultimately, the defense agreed to settle the case rather than face The Eisen Law Firm and its team of experts in the courtroom.

Confidential Settlement – Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (“Pre-Eclampsia”) Resulting in Maternal Neurological Deficits

Julie D was 25 weeks pregnant when she presented to the Labor and Delivery department of her local hospital with a headache and vision problems. Immediately, the nursing staff suspected pregnancy-induced hypertension (“Pre-Eclampsia”). When a laboratory test showed protein in Julie’s urine, the diagnosis should have been made. Unfortunately, Julie’s obstetrician never saw that test result, and an unsupervised L.P.N. was put in charge of Julie’s care and did not report the result.

Partner Brian N. Eisen was recruited to prepare the case for trial and conduct the trial as first chair for another attorney who had litigated the case. After Mr. Eisen completed the depositions of the defense expert witnesses, the defense settled the case on the courthouse steps.

$5,600,000 Settlement - Failure to Perform Cesarean Section Causes Birth Asphyxia and Cerebral Palsy

Rebecca Smith was delivered by Cesarean section after a prolonged labor. She had very low APGAR scores and developed seizures within 24 hours after birth. The Eisen Law Firm filed suit against her mother’s obstetrician and the hospital where the delivery occurred, claiming that fetal heart rate monitors showed that the baby was in distress and should have been delivered before her brain was deprived of oxygen.

The Eisen Law Firm focused on refuting the obstetrician’s claim that Rebecca’s cerebral palsy was caused by an infection in the placenta rather than medical negligence. That strategy resulted in a settlement that was more than enough to pay for Rebecca’s future medical care.

The Eisen Law Firm Wins Big in the Court of Appeals

Near the end of a two-week medical negligence trial against two sets of defendants, Defendant #1 called his key expert witness on direct examination. After Mr. Eisen cross-examined him, Defendant #2 was permitted to examine the expert. Instead of limiting the examination to matters raised on direct examination, however, Defendant #2 elicited new opinions from the expert. When Mr. Eisen stood up to cross-examine the expert on the new opinions, the judge refused to allow it. Since the expert’s new opinions went unchallenged, the jury believed everything he said. It was no surprise that the jury returned a defense verdict.

The Eisen Law Firm refused to accept defeat in this fashion, so it filed an appeal and asked for a new trial. On appeal, Mr. Gurney argued that it was reversible error for a trial court to permit a defendant to elicit new opinions from an expert, and then deny the plaintiff an opportunity to cross-examine the expert on those new opinions. The appellate court agreed, reversing the trial court’s decision and ordering a new trial. The Defendants tried to appeal to the Supreme Court of Ohio, but they were rejected. The case then settled shortly before the retrial, which would have included full and fair cross-examination.

$700,000 Settlement – Motor Vehicle Collision Resulting in Permanent Injuries

Mr. N was pulling up to a four-way intersection in rural Ohio when he was t-boned by a truck driver who failed to stop at the stop sign. Mr. N, and his minor son who was in the passenger seat, both were severely injured and had to be life-flighted to the hospital. Mr. N required immediate surgery, and was left with permanent and substantial physical injuries to his left wrist and right hip.

As a result of his injuries, Mr. N was unable to return to work for more than a year. In addition, he was unable to continue his role as the sole care-provider for his daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy. This required him to hire an in-home nursing care service to provide around-the-clock care for his daughter. Prior to filing suit, the truck driver’s insurance company settled the case for a substantial sum.

Ultimately, the hospital agreed to a settlement rather than face The Eisen Law Firm’s “profits over people” theme at trial.

Confidential Settlement – Failure to Diagnose Stroke in Five-Year-Old Boy with Down Syndrome Results in Permanent Injuries

Jack was born with Down syndrome, a genetic condition which affects kids along a spectrum. Over the early years, Jack was a high-functioning child with Down syndrome; he was able to do very well, and was tracking very close to his milestones.

One night when Jack was five years old, he woke up crying. His parents rushed to his bedroom to find him shaking. They took him to the ER immediately. A CT scan of Jack’s brain was ordered, but the radiologist on call failed to see clear evidence of an acute ischemic stroke evolving over the right side of Jack’s brain. Because of the failure to properly interpret the CT, Jack did not receive the treatment that he needed.

By the time the physicians actually started treating Jack’s stroke, it was too late. He already had suffered extensive injuries, including the loss of proper use of his left arm, hand, fingers, leg, foot, and toes.

A confidential settlement was reached with the hospital and physicians prior to trial.

$2,000,000 - Medical Error Caused Amputation of Child's Fingers

C.J. was a five-year-old child who was admitted to his local hospital for abdominal surgery. Following surgery, an arterial catheter was placed in his axillary artery (near his armpit) in order to obtain frequent blood draws. That catheter eventually caused blood clots, which traveled to C.J.’s fingers. C.J.’s mom noticed that his fingers were changing colors. The hospital discounted her observation. C.J. ultimately had to have all of his fingers on one hand amputated. A settlement was reached with the physician who placed the catheter and with the hospital.

Confidential Settlement - Death Following Dialysis

Evelyn P. was a 60-year-old woman with one adult child who died a few weeks after receiving dialysis at a dialysis center. The Eisen Law Firm was able to prove that the water used for dialysis was contaminated with bacteria that caused her death. A confidential settlement was reached with the various defendants and the entire water filtration system was re-designed in order to reduce the risk of future contamination.

Mr. L died of a massive PE. A confidential settlement was reached with the hospital shortly after the lawsuit was filed.

Confidential Settlement - Failure to Diagnose Rare Cardiac Condition Results in Wrongful Death

Steve K. began to sweat and have chest pain on the first day of his job in the legal department of his local hospital. He was taken to the emergency department. No tests were done on Steve, and he was sent home. The Eisen Law Firm contended that no cardiac tests were done because of Steve’s young age (he was in his twenties). Hospital witnesses claimed that Steve refused an EKG. The Eisen Law Firm was able to demonstrate that the witnesses’ testimony was unreliable, and a confidential settlement was reached.

Confidential Settlement - Death Following Failed Treatment for Heart Attack

Ray H. was 67 years old when he presented to the emergency department at a hospital near his home. He had complaints of chest pain and was diagnosed with an acute myocardial infarction (heart attack). He was given a powerful drug to dissolve clots in his coronary arteries. Ray’s condition deteriorated over the next day or so. By the time his caregivers realized that the clot-busters had failed and Ray needed surgery, it was too late. Had hospital personnel paid appropriate attention to Ray’s deteriorating condition, they could have prevented Ray’s death. A confidential settlement was reached with a physician and the hospital.

Wrongful Death of Newborn – Poor Obstetrical, Prenatal, and Hospital Care Results in Death of Newborn

Sally and John were excited to start their family. After months of trying to conceive, Sally went on the fertility drug, Clomid. The Clomid worked, and Sally became pregnant. Sally’s prenatal records show an entirely normal pregnancy and prenatal course. She was due to deliver on September 30th.

In the early summer, Sally switched to a new obstetrician and continued to have an uneventful pregnancy. On her due date, she went to the doctor and was evaluated. But the baby had different plans and was not ready, so the doctor told Sally to come back on October 9th. She returned as instructed on the 9th — 41 weeks and 2 days into her pregnancy. But still, the baby was not ready; neither was Sally’s cervix. So, the doctor told her to come back on Oct 13th. Once again, Sally did as she was told and returned as instructed. She was now 41 weeks and 6 days into her pregnancy. She was told everything looked great, and that it was time to induce labor.

So, Sally went to the hospital where a resident performed an ultrasound. This ultrasound showed that the baby’s head was down (a good position for delivery). The resident also took Sally’s prenatal information, did a physical exam and a risk assessment, and wrote numerous orders for her, including an order for continuous electronic fetal monitoring (EFM).

Regrettably, the EFM was not started for about 2 hours. When it finally was, no fetal heart beat could be found. Sally was then required to undergo induction and labor, only to deliver a stillborn baby. Sally’s medical providers told her that “sometimes this just happens.” Sally wasn’t so sure.

Sally and John hired The Eisen Law Firm. The Eisen Law Firm filed a lawsuit alleging the defendant doctors and hospital were negligent in their care and treatment of Sally and her baby, and that their negligence caused the baby’s death. The Eisen Law Firm was able to show that Sally did not receive appropriate care late in her pregnancy. After she reached 41 weeks, greater care should have been taken to assure the baby’s health in the womb. In addition, certain tests should have been done to make sure it was safe to keep waiting. Had the appropriate tests been done, it is likely that a problem would have been discovered in time to get the baby delivered without any injury at all.

While it is true that “sometimes this just happens,” it is also true that sometimes very tragic things – including stillbirths — happen because health care providers do not perform their jobs properly.

The Eisen Law Firm negotiated a confidential settlement for Sally and John.

Wrongful Death of Newborn – Undiagnosed Placental Abruption Results in Death of Fetus

Mr. and Mrs. Stone were so excited to have their first child. Mrs. Stone had a routine pregnancy and routine medical care up until June 25th. On that day, at approximately 27.5 weeks into her pregnancy, Mrs. Stone began to feel abdominal pain.

Wrongful Death of Fetus – Hospital and Doctor Inaction Results in Death of Fetus

Anaya, a young, soon-to-be mother, was scheduled to be induced. Upon arrival at the hospital, an electronic fetal monitor was placed to monitor the baby’s heart rate and the progress of uterine contractions. The initial monitoring showed minimal variability, so the nursing staff implemented various interventions, including intravenous hydration and maternal repositioning.

The various interventions did not significantly improve the situation. Anaya’s obstetrician was called by the nursing staff approximately one hour after Anaya’s arrival to the hospital. The doctor, in turn, asked that the Certified Nurse Midwife be contacted. The midwife, who was not at the hospital, had the nurses place an internal fetal scalp electrode, which is a more sensitive device for the monitoring of fetal heart rate and fetal heart rate patterns. At the same time, the midwife headed to the hospital.

In the meantime, the nurses lost the fetal heart rate altogether. The external electronic fetal monitor showed no signs of fetal heart rate, and upon placement of the internal monitor, no heart rate could be located, either. At that point, the midwife advised the nurses that she was less than five minutes from arriving to the labor and delivery department. When the midwife arrived, she, too, was unable to locate a fetal heart rate, and she had the doctor rush to the hospital.

An operating room team was assembled for an emergency Cesarean section, which was begun as soon as the doctor arrived. Unfortunately, the baby was born pulseless and not breathing. Hospital personnel were unable to resuscitate the baby.

The Eisen Law Firm analyzed the case and was able to demonstrate that a series of medical errors occurred that resulted in the baby’s death. The initial decision for the doctor to refer the matter to the nurse midwife, and the midwife’s decision to accept the care of Anaya, were both bad decisions, as midwives cannot perform emergency surgery to deliver a baby. Additionally, there should have been someone at the hospital who could adequately care for Anaya and her unborn child; they should not have had to wait for both the doctor and the midwife to arrive at the hospital.

The Eisen Law Firm proved that medical negligence caused the death of Anaya’s baby. A confidential settlement was reached prior to trial.

Failure to Perform a Cesarean Section Results in Perinatal Asphyxia and Death of Baby

Joy had good prenatal care, she was at full term, and all signs pointed to a normal and healthy baby on the day she went to the hospital to deliver.

As is standard in deliveries, an electronic fetal monitor (EFM) was placed on Joy’s belly to measure her contractions and the baby’s heart rate. Initially, the fetal monitor indicated that everything was fine. But after several hours of labor, the fetal monitoring strips showed cause for concern. Specifically, the strips showed fetal heart rate decelerations with a slow return to baseline and an erratic uterine contraction pattern. Despite these ominous signs that the baby was struggling to survive in the uterus, the doctor negligently failed to take action. Among other things, the doctor should have placed an internal fetal monitor, which is more sensitive and can provide more accurate information about the baby’s status.

An hour after the internal monitors should have been used, the baby’s heart rate repeatedly and severely decelerated and was slow to return to baseline. This likely was due to hypoxia (not enough oxygen reaching the baby’s tissues). A Cesarean section should have been performed at this time, as it was evident that a natural delivery was not imminent, and the baby was in danger. The doctor, however, again failed to act.

More than an hour later, after several failed attempts at vacuum extraction, the baby was finally delivered vaginally. He had no detectable vital signs and was completely limp. Despite efforts to resuscitate him, he did not survive. Various tests, including an umbilical blood gas study and a fetal autopsy, demonstrated that the baby, whose given name was Joey, died due to intrapartum asphyxia. In other words, he did not get enough oxygen during labor and essentially suffocated to death.

In the immediate aftermath of Joey’s death, Joy’s doctor repeatedly promised to “get to the bottom” of why Joey died. But, that never happened. Instead, Joey’s parents intentionally and repeatedly were misled as to the cause of his death. In fact, the doctors tried to conceal and misrepresent the autopsy findings.

The Eisen Law Firm took the depositions of multiple doctors and nurses. Each party blamed the other party, but it was very clear that had the proper procedures been followed, baby Joey’s death would have been prevented. A confidential settlement ultimately was reached, and Joey’s parents finally knew the real story surrounding his death — that it was caused by medical negligence.
