How We Have Helped: Kaiser Arbitration Case Results

Case Name: Ramon Doe v. Kaiser
Summary: A baby was born at a Kaiser hospital. During the birth, he suffered from pre-delivery asphyxia which resulted in Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. The hospital should have performed an emergency cesarean section, but instead allowed the baby to be born vaginally, resulting in an essential partial suffocation of the baby. In their claims against Kaiser, plaintiffs claimed that the conduct of the physicians and nurses fell well below the applicable standards of care for treating pre-delivery asphyxia.
Recovery Range: $2,000,000 - $3,000,000

Case Name: Amelita Doe v. Kaiser
Summary: Amelita Doe sued Kaiser for the wrongful death of her husband, Oscar. He went to the urgent care department at Kaiser Hospital A on two consecutive days, with symptoms that required he be worked up for pneumonia. Both days, the doctors failed to provide such a work up. When Oscar was finally diagnosed at Kaiser Hospital B's emergency room on the third day, he was already suffering from multi-system organ failure. He was admitted to the hospital, where he continued to receive substandard care, and died twelve days later at the age of 57.
Recovery Range: $650,000 - $1,000,000

Case Name: Sid Doe v. Kaiser
Summary: Sid Doe suffered an intra-articular fracture of his right knee while working as a carpenter. Over the course of eleven months, his orthopedists, radiologists, and other doctors at Kaiser all failed to properly diagnose the fracture and to properly treat it. As a result, the knee healed mal-aligned with a severe valgus deformity which caused pain. Due to his doctors' negligence, he will need a total knee replacement.
Recovery Range: $400,000 - $650,000

Case Name: Kelly Doe v. Kaiser
Summary: Kelly Doe went to a Kaiser Hospital for a routine endoscopic sinus surgery to remove some nasal polyps. The surgeon became confused and broke through her cribriform plate in her skull, causing intracranial bleeding and permanent mild brain damage. The puncture caused permanent impairment to plaintiff’s memory, decision making, and multi-tasking abilities. (Note: Plaintiff was only entitled to recover $250,000 from Kaiser for her pain and suffering because California law caps what a victim in a medical malpractice case can recover for pain and suffering to just $250,000.)
Recovery Range: $400,000 - $650,000

Case Name: Bruce Doe v. Kaiser
Summary: An emergency room nurse negligently inserted an intravenous needle into plaintiff's left wrist, permanently injuring his left radial nerve. As a result, he suffered a disabling, severe pain syndrome with very limited function of his left wrist and hand. Plaintiff sued the Kaiser for negligence.
Recovery Range: $400,000 - $650,000
