Our client made repeated trips to a podiatrist regarding lesions on the bottom of her foot. The podiatrist failed to diagnose the melanoma and our client died. The podiatrist paid our client's family money to compensate them for our client's death.

We filed and settled a case against Uniontown Hospital and an obstetrician for failing to timely deliver a baby who during labor suffered over 45 minutes of oxygen deprivation due to compression of the umbilical cord. We argued that the delay in delivery caused the little girl to suffer cerebral palsy and irreversible brain damage. As a result of the settlement, the little girl will receive the 24-hour a day care that she requires for the rest of her life.
We settled a case against obstetricians in Uniontown PA for a little boy who suffered brain damage because when the doctors did a proceedure called an external cephalic his heart rate went down. Despite his decreased heart rate the doctors did the proceedure three more times. Finally, the doctors did a cesearian section but by that time the baby had suffered brain damage. We obtained a money settlement to make sure that little boy gets the care he needs.
