Settlement: Trust fund established for injured baby

Personal Injury, Medical Malpractice

Terry Garmey & Associates represented a married couple whose son was born at a Maine hospital. The baby suffered a tragic and devastating brain injury that wil require costly medical treatment, supportive services and therapies for the rest of his life.

Working with a team of medical experts, Terry Garmey & Associates established that the baby's injuries were caused by a failure by hospital staff to properly interpret key medical data during the late stages of labor. A settlement was reached at mediation which resulted in the creation of a special needs trust to ensure the child will receive proper medical care.

"My son is faced with some incredibly challenging prospects for the future, for his health and development. Because of all the work that Terry and his team put in, my son is going to be taken care of financially, and that is huge," said the boy's father, Nathan. "His outlook on life is vastly improved because of the work they put in."
