$3 million settlement at trial
This was a very sad case where a young Chinese first time mother because of the medical malpractice of the doctors and staff at what was then Beekman Downtown Hospital failed to properly monitor the fetus in the hospital and then called an emergency because of fetal distress. The ultimate outcome was that the baby was lost and the mother ended up with a 3rd degree laceration of her anatomy which was very painful and caused future problems. Paul Dansker settled this case after openings. The mother sobbed loudly throughout the small courtroom in front of a sympathetic jury and neighbors, family and friends of the mother and father who packed the courtroom..
