$1.9 Million Partial Settlement for Estate of Abused Child
SRBC partners David Barry and Tony Agudelo have obtained a $1.9 settlement with two of the defendants in an ongoing case on behalf of the estate of a severely abused child who eventually sustained a traumatic brain-stem injury that put her in a coma for several months, and left her permanently and deeply disabled. The settling defendants are a pediatrician and a nurse-practitioner who saw and treated the child, and, it was alleged, negligently accepted explanations for her injuries and thus failed to report clear signs of abuse. The case remains pending against several other health-care providers.
