$11.0 Million O.P. v. Anonymous Hospital and Anonymous Doctor

Fagel negotiated a $11,000,000 settlement for the family where medical negligence by doctors and the hospital resulted in the patient suffering from cerebral palsy, and is tracheostomy and gastrostomy dependent, as a result of kernicterus. The patient’s injuries are the result of hyperbilirubinemia, which were present at the time of his discharge. The hospital and doctors failure to timely and properly diagnosis and treat the hyperbilirubinemia caused irreversible injury which could have been prevented had the doctors and hospital not violated the standard of care.
