Glen Falls, NY Doctor to Pay $3 Million for Birth Defects Suffered 18 Years Ago

Published March 8, 2011 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

PostStar.com reports a Warren County state Supreme Court has found a doctor should pay $3 million for injuries a now 18-year-old girl suffered during her birth.

The jury found Dr. Stephen Serlin, an OB/GYN should pay the girl who suffers from cerebral palsy and other health issues she suffers because of a brain injury at birth. Dr. Serlin was found to have “deviated from the acceptable standard of care” which was a large factor in the girl’s health issues.

He was called to the hospital at 5 a.m. to perform an emergency Cesarean section. He arrived 2 hours later and did not start the surgery until 8:14 am – a delay where the brain injury occurred. The baby suffered “fetal asphyxia” in the womb due to a compressed umbilical cord.

During labor and delivery, medical complications can result in birth injuries. Experience counts.
