Birth Injuries | Attorney: Bruce Kehoe

Pitocin Birth Injury

Request a Free Consultation

Our client was induced for labor at 40 weeks and two days gestation. She presented somewhat tenuously, and, despite red flags, she continued to receive Pitocin. As labor progressed, the baby began to show signs of stress and acidosis, and the Pitocin should have been discontinued. The baby was born in an apneic, depressed, flaccid condition, and lab work showed evidence of metabolic acidosis and an acute hypoxic event. Medical experts determined that earlier intervention and delivery should have been undertaken.

The child will need continued assistance throughout his life. The medical review panel found that the defendants breached the standard of care and, after a lengthy eight-year battle, the case settled for the maximum amount available under Indiana law.
