Birthing Malpractice

This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Orange County, CA: (Jan-29-08) Ardie and Ela Ehtemam brought a medical malpractice lawsuit against Kaiser Permanente's Anaheim hospital, alleging that their daughter suffered brain damage during her birth. The suit claimed that Ariana Ehtemam, now 14, wasn't breathing when she was delivered by Caesarean section and now suffers from physical and behavioral problems. The suit alleged that Ela Ehtemam's C-section wasn't performed in a timely matter. The baby had to be resuscitated and spent several weeks in the hospital. Ariana now suffers from hearing loss, poor impulse control and attention deficits.

As part of a settlement reached, sources disclosed that Kaiser Permanente agreed to a $3.2 million payout to the Lake Forest girl. The money from Kaiser has purchased an annuity worth $20 million over her lifetime. She will receive the first payment at 18. Officials claimed that the money will pay for future medical expenses, ongoing rehabilitation services and any residential supervision she may need. [ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER: BIRTHING MALPRACTICE]
