$1.4 Million settlement Baby Taylor C: This medical malpractice case was settled at trial by Paul Dansker in Supreme Court Nassau County several years ago.

These were all warning signs of an overly large baby. Taylor ultimately was 9 lbs. 13 oz. But instead of delivering by C section which was clearly indicated, the attending physician Dr Kaufman, despite the fact that the baby was stuck in the pelvic area, used force to push and pull the baby out, severing the baby’s nerves in her neck causing partial paralysis of her left arm, as well as causing tearing of the mother’s anatomy.
