Our client, a seven-year-old girl, claimed that a United States government-run medical clinic provided inadequate care before and during her 1998 birth.
Attorney Michael Hupy and a Detroit attorney who focuses on birth injury cases spent several years preparing the case and attempting to resolve the mother-and-daughter claim without a trial. In federal court on June 9, 2006, they finally finished the case and a judge awarded our young client $20 million.
In a previous case, Attorney Hupy represented a seven-year-old boy who was injured when his mother slipped on ice in front of a clinic. The claim against the clinic was settled and its insurance company paid for a structured payment of $22 million.
