Plaintiff’s counsel also claimed that there was inadequate supervision of the nurse trainee on October 14 and 15.
The infant’s lawyer noted that the fetal monitoring strips were missing during the pregnancy. The hospital’s chief of medical records testified that they were last seen and accounted for the day after the birth.
The plaintiff’s perinatology expert, Maryann Tallan asserted that the uterine stimulation, coupled with maternal hypertension and maternal fever, caused fetal distress and hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. The lawyer alleged that the treaters failed to appreciate the fetal distress and failed to perform an early C-section. Plaintiff’s pediatric neurology expert Barry Michael supported Tallan’s claims, adding that the baby probably would not have gotten cerebral palsy if a prompt C-section had been performed.
The defense argued that the baby was born with cerebral palsy due to complications that happened during the pregnancy’s first trimester.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
