After finding him guilty of medical malpractice a court has determined that Dr. Stephen Serlin pay $3 million to a woman who suffered injuries during childbirth eighteen years ago.
The Supreme Court jury in Warren County found the doctor guilty of causing damages to Marlayna Kineke who suffered a brain injury during the birth that has led to continuing health problems. Medical reports show that there was a three to four hour delay in surgery time after the doctor realized that a brain injury had occurred. However, the doctor rebutted by saying that there was no sign of the injury during labor.
Kineke was found to have suffered "fetal asphyxia" in the womb, causing her to live with cerebral palsy all of her life. It is believed that the umbilical cord was compressed during the delivery, causing fetal asphyxia and the resulting cerebral palsy. In some cases it was found to cause other serious injuries as well as death.
“She was very professional, kept me completely involved and updated with everything. Awesome job done.”
“Maria stayed on top of everything with updates, etc.”
“Very good communication throughout my case. Brenda paid great attention to my case and kept me up to date.”
“Both attorneys involved were very informative and walked me through my case every setp of the way. They answered any questions and concerns I had whenever they cam up. I was very nervous and skeptical at the beginning but that quickly changed.”
