Lisa Arrowood and Jed DeWick Obtain $460,000 Settlement for Family in Infant Death Case



Lisa G. Arrowood and Jed DeWick achieved a $460,000 settlement on behalf of the family of an infant who died at four-days-old.  The baby girl was born full term, but following her birth her weight decreased significantly.  In spite of this, she was discharged home from the hospital.  The baby developed jaundice at home, but neither a visiting nurse nor calls to the baby’s pediatrician led to appropriate treatment.  The baby’s symptoms worsened and her parents took her to the emergency room, but her condition could not be stabilized and she passed away.  The case settled shortly before the case was scheduled to be tried.
