When Jaundice Leads To Brain Injury
Legal Topics | 2009/08/02 18:27
According to ABC News, Susan Haas says that when her daughter, Lexi, was born she was a normal, healthy baby girl. So when Lexi, at 3 days old, developed jaundice -- a common liver condition that is estimated to affect six out of every 10 babies -- the doctor was not concerned, Haas said.

That was seven years ago. Today at 6:30 a.m., Lexi, 7, headed into an operating room for brain surgery. It is an extreme measure for a brain injury that Haas said could have been caught early and treated inexpensively.

"She would not be having any problems if she'd had a $1 bilirubin test," she said. Instead, Haas estimated that medical expenses and other services would cost $25 million over Lexi's life.

If your child has had the same experience, you may want to consider finding a brain injury lawyer to help you file a case. For those in the New York area, John Q. Kelly and his law firm can be of assistance. They've had many high profile cases, including O.J. Simpson and the estate of Natalee Holloway. They also specialize in medical malpractice and wrongful death cases.
