$192,500 Settlement for a hip dysplasia lawsuit against two pediatricians and the pediatric practice.  The patient was a first born, twin girl, who was born in the breech position.   As a result, she was at the highest risk for developing a dislocated hip.  She was seen as a newborn at the pediatric practice and there was evidence of a hip dislocation but it was not timely diagnosed.  Due to the late diagnosis, she required surgery on her hip and may require additional surgery in the future.
