Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Pays $4.5 million in Doctor Error Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

By Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP. posted in Medical Malpractice on Friday, December 13, 2019.

In West Palm Beach, Florida, a couple filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against a doctor and an ultrasound technician for what they believe constitutes as medical negligence.

What should have been a joyous occasion marking the birth of their child quickly turned sour when the couple realized that their son had been born with no arms and only one leg. Closer medical examination revealed that the baby’s disabilities were extensive, with the parents even going as far as labeling them as “horrific.”

In filing their medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor and the ultrasound technician at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, the couple stated that had they known of his disabilities beforehand, they would have aborted their son. Additionally, the couple revealed that the entire ordeal could have been prevented had the healthcare professionals done their jobs correctly, and properly administered the two ultrasounds, which would have identified that three of the baby’s limbs were missing.

The couple sued for $9 million to account for the economic damages incurred by the child’s disability for the next 70 years. At the hearing, it was decided that both the doctor and the ultrasound technician had been negligent and that the doctor held 85% of the responsibility, and the ultrasound technician held 15% of the responsibility. While the couple didn’t receive the $9 million in damages that they had hoped for, they did receive $4.5 million in damages to help with the care of their son.

Legal Matters

Doctor errors are often considered “never events” as they are preventable adverse events that should never have happened. These errors must cause you pain or suffering, or do you harm for you to be able to open a viable medical malpractice lawsuit.

If you live in NYC and wish to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, you should begin the process as quickly as possible by consulting with a qualified NYC medical malpractice lawyer who can guide you on what you can expect from the process and what steps you will need to follow. These steps generally include:

  1. Contacting the healthcare professionals involved and finding out what went wrong and if the problem can be remediated
  2. Contacting the appropriate medical licensing board if the healthcare professionals do not offer you help
  3. Finding out the statute of limitations to ensure your medical malpractice claim is filed timeously
  4. Getting a certificate of merit to confirm that your injuries were caused by the error/s of your healthcare professionals
  5. Discussing the possibility of settling out of court

In addition to these steps, there are certain laws that each state needs to adhere to, and your NYC medical malpractice attorney will know what these are and how to ensure that you have the best possible chance of winning your lawsuit by taking them into account.
