$1,350,000.00 Settlement for Death of Six Day Old Boy

On January 27, 2010 Judge William Maddux approved a 1.35 million dollar settlement agreed upon prior to a lawsuit being filed for the death of a six day old boy whose death was caused by the failure of the residents and nursing staff of Rush Medical Center to properly monitor the fetal heart rate causing the mother’s uterus to rupture and the baby to be deprived of oxygen and ultimately brain death.


Don M. Sowers represented the plaintiffs.
