$3.5 million settlement
The parents of a seven-year-old boy brought a suit on his behalf for a brain injury he suffered at birth. Shortly after his mother went into labor, she went to the defendant’s hospital. The defendant’s doctor administered a drug called Pitocin. Pitocin is used to increase the strength and frequency of a mother’s contractions and is intended to be administered until the contractions reach a certain level. Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader alleged the defendants negligently increased the Pitocin to unsafe levels, which caused the mother’s uterus to rupture. The rupture caused the baby to be deprived of oxygen-rich blood, and resulted in a brain injury. The attorneys on this case were James P. Frickleton and Mike Meyer.
