Jaundice of the newborn

Too much bilirubin can cause brain damage if the doctors do not carefully monitor and teat it.

Delay in diagnosing or treating jaundice

Newborns babies often get jaundice (yellow looking skin, the whites of their eyes may look yellow too) caused by too much bilirubin in the blood. If the blood levels of bilirubin get too high, the baby is put under “bili” lights for a few days and blood tests are done to make sure the bilirubin level is decreasing. However, very severe brain damage occurs if a baby has high bilirubin but is not treated, or is taken off the bili lights before the blood levels have decreased. Our attorneys have successfully handled cases of brain injury caused by jaundice of the newborn that was not timely detected or treated by military hospitals.

If your newborn suffered an injury from the failure of an Air Force, Army or Navy doctor or hospital to treat jaundice, our lawyers can help you get the compensation you need to care for your child.
