Summary of Allegations: Caleb was above the 99th percentile in gestational age prior to his birth, this information along with his mother’s history of a complicated first birth, warranted a caesarean section. Both Frederick Memorial Hospital and Simmonds, Martin & Helmbrecht, LLP, by and through their agents and employees failed to perform the recommended caesarean section and performed an ordinary vaginal birth. Thus, Caleb was born with the previously mentioned injuries that could have been avoided, but for the Defendants’ choice to perform an ordinary vaginal birth.
