Sommers Schwartz attorney Richard Groffsky filed a medical negligence action on behalf of Ari Davis, who was the second of twins born to mother Charde Parnell. According to lawsuit, the defendant doctors responsible for Mrs. Parnell and Ari’s care failed to properly recognize fetal monitor abnormalities including decelerations and bradycardia, which indicated a need for Ari’s delivery via an emergency caesarean section. As a result of this failure, Ari suffered hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, or brain injury caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. This birth injury lawsuit, seeking damages including medical expenses and pain and suffering, is now pending in Clayton County, Georgia State Court.
