Record $20 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement in California Achieved by San Diego Law Firm Estey Bomberger

$20 million, a record settlement in California, will be used to provide a lifetime of medical care for a young child left brain damaged due to the negligence of a hospital (unnamed due to confidentiality) in Southern California. San Diego's Estey & Bomberger law firm, led by attorney Michael Bomberger, worked on this medical malpractice case representing the family of a premature newborn baby — the hospital nursing staff failed to properly monitor a feeding tube, resulting in brain damage to the child. The entire settlement, including payment disbursements, will be supervised and protected by the courts because the newborn is a minor. Bomberger’s litigation team consulted with and retained a top-notch team of medical experts to understand and determine the extent of the injuries, to develop a future prognosis for the child and to come up with a life care plan to ensure the child would receive the appropriate level of care. Bomberger attested that in most cases both parties agree to the use of a CNA at an average of $17 an hour. But in this case, the foreseeable problems would require an RN at an average of $47 an hour due to the likelihood of seizures, shunt failure, and medication overdose. The case took over three years to resolve; it was finally settled after the hospital was faced with a California jury trial. Additional trial preparation by Bomberger's team included conducting nearly 20 focus groups, strategizing on depositions of defense experts, and identifying the weak points of the hospital’s case.
