Wrongful Death Claims for Infant Child
Dean v. Holliman
Type of case
Medical Malpractice; Wrongful Death
This was a seven-day wrongful death/medical negligence jury trial in a historically plaintiff-friendly jurisdiction. The plaintiffs alleged that the defendants (two OB/GYNs and the LLC that employed them) committed malpractice resulting in the premature birth, pain, suffering, and death of the plaintiffs’ male infant son, as well as the pain, suffering, and emotional distress of his mother. The case involved complicated medical issues and testimony from multiple leading experts. The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff, but WWHGD obtained a favorable settlement for our defendant after filing post-trial motions.
