Verdicts/Settlements:

  • Russell Gregory has obtained numerous settlements in excess of a million dollars, including: $3.3 Million - Twins: cerebral palsy. A woman, pregnant with twins, was in the hospital due to an evolving abruption placenta. She was transferred to another hospital. However, the transfer caused a delay in delivery during which time there was not enough blood flow to the fetuses. In addition, the hospital was not able to monitor one of the twins, which resulted in neonatal crashing and additional neurological damage. The Apgars for one twin was five and seven, while the other was five and eight. As a result of birth trauma, both twins now suffer from cerebral palsy. $2.25 Million (Pre-suit Settlement) - Erb's palsy, cerebral palsy Plaintiff had gestational diabetes.  A week before delivery, the fetus was estimated to weigh about eight pounds. Doctors noted the possibility of a high birth weight baby, but did not offer a C-section. During delivery, shoulder dystocia occurred. However, despite attempts to correct the situation, the infant remained stuck for four minutes. The child was born weighing more than 11 pounds. He has since been diagnosed with Erb's palsy and cerebral palsy as a result of birth trauma. $3.5 Million - Twins: Cerebral palsy, mental retardation.  Plaintiff was pregnant with twins. At about 27 weeks, she began spotting and went to the hospital. The exam showed no evidence of blood or contractions. The patient was released. Three days later she began having contractions and delivered twins. The plaintiff suffered placental abruption and chronic maternal vessel disease, but was undiagnosed and untreated. As a result, the premature infants suffered cerebral palsy and mental retardation, one moderate and the other severe.
