Reported Cases:
Verdicts & Cases: Summary Judgement in Queens County; HPM&B recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of a major medical institution in a high exposure medical malpractice action. Plaintiff claimed that defendant failed to timely diagnose and treat viral encephalitis in a then-14 month old infant, causing severe and permanent brain damage.; Defense Verdict in Suffolk County; HPM&B partner Robin Dolsky, assisted by senior associate Ana Vizzo, successfully represented an obstetrician in a claim involving neurologically-impaired infant plaintiffs who were delivered at 26 weeks' gestation. It was alleged that HPM&B's client should have monitored the plaintiff-mother more closely because she was at high risk for preterm delivery (she was carrying twins, a smoker, and over 35 years old), and had he done so, he would have been able to intervene at an earlier stage of labor with tocolytic therapy and prolonged the pregnancy.; In Case Of First Impression, Court Rejects Claim That Premature Birth Causes Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorder; After slipping and falling on a manhole cover while in her thirty-fourth week of pregnancy, the plaintiff went into preterm labor and gave birth to her daughter the next day. The infant weighed five pounds, four ounces at birth and she was assigned APGAR scores of 9 at one minute and 9 at five minutes.
