$11.0 Million V.L. 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, epilepsy, being fed through a gastrostomy tube and is dependent on others for all of her daily needs. The patient’s injuries are the result of the hypoxic-ischemic brain damage that she suffered during the events of her labor and delivery, combined with a failure after the delivery to provide her with hypothermia therapy that would have prevented the death of further brain tissue. Dr. Fagel’s experience and expertise in handling birth and brain injury cases resulted in this successful eight figure settlement.
