You learn you’re having your first baby and you’re excited that you’ll be a mother. Your pregnancy goes smoothly – except your due date comes and goes. Fifteen days later, your doctor induces labor.
Then the worse-case scenario begins…trouble during the 11 hour delivery. The 11 pound, unborn baby is in distress. His heart rate dips below 60 beats per minute for more than 5 agonizing minutes. After 28 more minutes, the doctors finally order an emergency C-section – in an available OR across the hall.
For those of us with kids, our innate fear of a nightmare scenario became reality for first time parents Derrick and Elizabeth Ramseyer. Their son Maverick was in fetal distress and during the C-section procedure untrained personnel and insufficient equipment caused additional complications including; inhalation of his own fecal matter, or meconium.
Maverick survived, although with significant brain damage and developed cerebral palsy.

Attorney Laura Kalur was called in by the family because of her extensive medical negligence experience. She uncovered significant doctor and hospital errors that caused and exacerbated Maverick’s injuries. She was successful in fighting for the family winning a confidential settlement which provides an excellent resolution for the family.
To Laura we offer, on behalf of everyone at Advocate Capital, our sincere congratulations and thanks for all you do for all your clients.
We work with the country’s best and brightest trial lawyers and, we are proud that Ms. Kalur is one of our valued clients.
