FEATURED CASES:
BRAIN INJURY / MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

BUSINESS LAW FIRM SECURES A $96 MILLION VERDICT
IN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASE


On March 24, 2003, Aidan Leung was born at Verdugo Hills Hospital under the care of Dr. Steven Nishibayashi. Aidan was born a healthy child, but he exhibited numerous risk factors that placed him at high risk to develop kernicterus, a neurological disorder caused by severe jaundice.

Aidan had some bruises on his head, also known as cephalhematomas, which Dr. Nishibayashi stated were potentially caused by coming through the birth canal. He told the Leungs it was nothing to worry about and that Aidan could be discharged.

The Leungs were not told that such bruising can generate high levels of bilirubin, which increases the risk of severe jaundice and kernicterus. Aidan began to experience jaundice a few days after being discharged from the hospital. Two days later, Aidan became lethargic and was barely feeding. read more...

Attorney’s Comments Regarding Mr. Mills’ punitive damages testimony at trial: "Mr. Mills helped the jury to understand the true financial condition of the defendant. Although the defendant has not operated for decades, Mr. Mills was able to examine historical documents, including old news releases, and explain to the jury in clear and understandable terms how that information revealed the defendant’s actual financial condition. Mr. Mills was able to take tax return information received during trial and convey that data to the jury in a way that supported his opinions and assisted them in their task.”
