$1.1 Million | Death of Premature Baby

$1.1 Million | Death of Premature Baby

$1.1 Million awarded to the family of a baby born prematurely. Due to concerns regarding potential placental abruption and non-reassuring fetal heart tones, Baby Jonathan was delivered via emergency C-section at 23-24 weeks’ gestation. As is often the case with premature babies, Jonathan was given doses of morphine sulfate for sedation. However, this lawsuit charged that on 6-8 occasions Jonathan received doses that were 10-20 times the recommended amount for his weight and allegedly led to hypotension, renal failure, multi-system organ failure, sepsis, and his death.
