Medical Malpractice

In 2000, Rebecca Blasco checked into the hospital of one of the nation’s largest health management organizations, in labor with her first baby. Over her objection, she received multiple doses of a contraction-strengthening “off-label” drug, despite warnings against such use by the Federal Drug Administration as well as the drug manufacturer. The drug, misoprostil, is designed to treat gastrointestinal reflux. It is sometimes used “off-label” by inserting a portion of a tablet to stimulate uterine contractions. In the late 1990s the FDA and the drug’s manufacturer cautioned against this off-label use, due to its association with excessive uterine contractions and fetal injuries. Nevertheless, the HMO had a policy of using misoprostil off-label, rather than an available FDA-approved medication, in order to save approximately $125 per patient. Baby Abigael ultimately suffered severe brain injury from oxygen deprivation. After four years of litigation, the HMO refused to engage in settlement discussions with Abi Blasco’s family. Woodruff took the case to arbitration and approximately two months later the California judge issued an award of nearly $70 million. It is the largest medical malpractice arbitration award in U.S. history. David S. Woodruff

Birth Injury

$70 million arbitration award, the largest known medical malpractice arbitration award in U.S. history. David S Woodruff handled this birth injury case involving an HMO labor/delivery unit that misused Cytotec, a drug used to induce labor. The improper use of misoprostil caused uterine hyper -stimulation, decreasing blood supply to the unborn infant. The labor/delivery team failed to timely recognized the changes in the baby’s heart rate, and failed to take emergency action to deliver her. As a result, baby Abigail suffered a severe brain injury. After a two-week arbitration hearing, Judge Richard Frazee entered a final judgment, awarding the child nearly $70 million in damages.David S. Woodruff

Car Accident

Steve Wahlberg has brought claims on behalf of passengers seriously injured when a Ford Econoline van rolled over. Mr. Wahlberg has investigated and litigated many claims involving passenger vans and has proven that 15 passenger vans have a higher center of gravity. These vans, when fully loaded, become unstable—if a tire should experience a tread separation, the vehicle becomes extremely dangerous and subject to a rollover. The 15 passenger van was a modified design of a vehicle meant to carry cargo. When Ford converted the van for occupants—the rollover rate increased significantly due to the higher center of gravity and extension over the rear tires. Mr. Wahlberg has also filed suit against Cooper Tire alleging a tire defect resulting in a tread separation. There was a recall of millions of Bridgestone and Firestone tires in 2001 to 2003, but some defective tires remain on the road. Some of the manufacturing problems include the improper curing of tires—which cause cracking that leads to tread separation. If the connection between the belt and the rest of the tire is weak—there can be a propensity for the tread to separate.Stephen W. Wahlberg
