Negligent postpartum care leads to brain injury

Virginia woman suffered an anoxic brain injury resulting from negligent postpartum care: Our client was a 30 year-old mother of three children who experienced hemorrhaging after the delivery of her third child in a Richmond area hospital. She was allowed to continue to hemorrhage for approximately 16 hours, resulting in her suffering a profound anoxic brain injury that left her in a vegetative state. This case settled the day the Virginia Supreme Court published its decision in Pulliam v. Coastal Emergency Services of Richmond, Inc., wherein the Court declined to hold unconstitutional Virginia’s $1 million cap on medical malpractice recoveries. | client awarded: $900,000
