Request a Free Consultation

A mother presented to a local hospital in labor at 39 weeks. Upon admission, the baby demonstrated non-reassuring fetal heart tracings including continued variable and late decelerations. Labor was allowed to continue over 16 hours with decreasing variability. On birth, the baby suffered from hypoxia, metabolic acidosis, and a brain injury from the failure to properly monitor the fetal heart tracings and convert to an emergency C-section. The baby subsequently passed away. Bruce Kehoe filed this case before the Indiana Department of Insurance where he was able to get a swift resolution, and was ultimately able to recover $1 million in excess damages from the Patient’s Compensation Fund.
