Russ Berkowitz has filed a lawsuit against Yale-New Haven Hospital in New Haven Superior Court on behalf of a baby that was born with permanent neurological deficits following two days of labor at the defendant hospital. During that time, our client’s mother was never offered a c-section throughout her labor period until the very end of her labor, despite electronic fetal monitor tracings showing that our client was in fetal distress for a significant period of time prior to his delivery. Our infant client was born with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy due to his lack of oxygen in utero during the labor period and has been left with a permanent brain injury and neurological sequelae that will leave him permanently disabled.
