Michigan Lawyers Weekly reviews and ranks the greatest verdicts, settlements,
and judgements in Michigan every year. After categorizing all usable data
from 2017, it has ranked an obstetrical malpractice settlement secured by
Attorney Jack Beam of Beam Legal Team, LLC – in co-counsel with Attorney Geoffrey Fieger
– as the
fourth largest settlement in the state last year. The settlement was valued at $8,000,000.
It is with much pride and excitement we are able to make this announcement.
We would like to take this time to congratulate Attorney Jack Beam for
his efforts and thank Attorney Fieger for providing invaluable case information.
We must also show appreciation for our clients who have believed in us
throughout the years. Thanks to your support and patronage, we have become
the powerhouse birth injury law firm we are today.
Details of the $8M Settlement Case
Pitocin was negligently used in an attempt to assist a mother through delivery.
There were also indications of fetal tachycardia and there were several
hours of recurrent late decelerations. The baby was born largely unresponsive
yet doctors did not use
therapeutic hypothermia to help prevent or minimize
brain damage. The child has since been diagnosed with
hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), and a number of other chronic health conditions that could have
been avoided with proper medical care. The $8 million settlement will
help pay for preexisting medical costs, all future treatments and rehabilitation,
and provide for noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering of the
child and the family.
