Military Hospital Newborn Injury Case Settles for $6.5 million, Janet, Jenner & Suggs Attorneys Announce
Date:12/10/2013

(PRWEB) December 10, 2013

The parents of a child born severely brain-injured at the military hospital at Fort Hood, TX, have settled their lawsuit against the U.S. government for $6.5 million, the parents’ lawyers have announced.

The lawsuit was filed by Kasie and Higinio Rivera against Darnall Army Medical Center in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Austin, following the birth of their son on Sept. 12, 2008.

(Rivera v. U.S. Government, Civil Action 1: 12-CV-338).

“Our goal was to make sure our son has the things he will need to have the best possible life,” Kasie Rivera said.

“As a veteran myself, I strongly believe our military families deserve the best health care possible. We hope this sends a message and leads to changes that will keep other mothers safer,” said Ken Suggs, of Janet, Jenner & Suggs, LLC.

According to a newspaper story in the Killeen Daily Herald on December 5, 2013 about the settlement, Haiden Rivera was airlifted three days after birth to the military hospital at Lackland Air force Base in San Antonio.

“He wasn’t crying when he was born. I knew that something wasn’t right. He wasn’t moving, he didn’t cry. He wouldn’t drink out of a bottle,” recalled Kasie, according to the article. Research led her to believe that the damage was related to trauma, the article said.
