NY Case On Birth Trauma Malpractice

Appellant: Tymeik Williams, &c.
Respondents: Nassau County Medical Center,et al.

In the case before us, the infant plaintiff alleges that his epilepsy and developmental disabilities were the result of negligence on the part of Nassau County Medical Center and its employees in connection with his birth.

The medical employees in attendance gave his mother pitocin, a drug used to facilitate the birth. The delivery involved two attempts at vacuum extraction and, ultimately, the use of forceps. According to the hospital records, the mother's pelvis was adequate to accommodate the baby's head and the birth was without complication.

Physician who interpreted the hospital records and alleged that the hospital new or should have known that complications would and did occur. He averred that the size of the mother's pelvis and signs of fetal distress argued against the use of pitocin, and that after birth the baby was trembling and showed physical signs of trauma. The defendants argue that plaintiff's disability was not apparent until, at the age of one or two, he began to experience epileptic seizures and show delayed development.
