$2.0 million settlement – For the minor Frank Delgado and his parents. Frank suffered brain damage at birth due to a failure to diagnose and prepare for breech presentation during pregnancy. Frank was noted in vertical position according to the OB/GYN records. However, two sonograms done during the pregnancy showed Frank in breech presentation. The appropriate medical practice is to perform a caesarian section if the baby is in breech presentation at 39 weeks gestation. The failure to perform a caesarian section caused a single footling breech birth with cord prolapse. The cord prolapse caused interruption of blood flow with resulting brain damage to the baby. The treatment occurred in a federal low cost health clinic. As a result, the claim had to be brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act against the United States. After a lawsuit was filed, depositions were taken and just prior to trial, the case was resolved for $2,000,000 in April 2013.
