Lawsuit against obstetrician for misreading sonogram settles

C____: E____ C____ was born with a fairly common defect in her heart - a transposition of the great vessels. As a result, E____ was unable to get fresh blood from her lungs to the rest of her body. The transposition was misread in a prenatal sonogram, and was also missed in an echocardiogram performed shortly after her birth. By the end of her first day of life, E____ C____ died. The suit against the obstetrician for misreading the sonogram and against the pediatric cardiologist for misreading the echocardiogram was settled for $1,000,000.00**.

** A contingent (%) fee charged on the successful recovery resulted in a fee of $400,000.00 and $49,000.00 in litigation expenses which were reimbursed by the client out of the gross settlement amount.
