BECKLEY — A husband and wife are suing Raleigh General Hospital for alleged negligence and vicarious liability in the birth of their son.
Chase Fadlevich and Brandy Fadlevich, individually and on behalf of their son W.F., filed a complaint against health care providers Raleigh General Hospital LLC, et. al., in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia Beckley Division. The Fadleviches allege that the defendants failed to follow the standard of care for a patient with hypertensive disorder in pregnancy.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that on June 15, 2016, Brandy Fadlevich received medical care from the defendants for the delivery of her son W.F. Complication arose during delivery and W.F. was diagnosed with convulsions of a newborn and microcephaly on or about Feb. 8, 2017. The plaintiffs have suffered and will continue to suffer economic and noneconomic damages they claim could have been avoided had the defendants followed the standard of care.
The Fadleviches holds Raleigh General Hospital LLC, et. al., responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to emergently deliver W.F., failed to adequately monitor W.F. for fetal well-being, failed to accurately interpret electronic fetal monitoring tracing and failed to appreciate that W.F. was likely to be born depressed. The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendants, jointly and severally, for all damages, civil penalties, attorney’s fees, costs, interest and all other relief as justice requires. They are represented by Scott S. Segal and C. Edward Amos, II of The Segal Law Firm in Charleston, and Stephen F. Cain of Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, PA in Miami.
