Sacramento medical malpractice lawsuits are intended to help injured people and their families recover the necessary financial compensation that was caused by the negligence of doctors or other medical professionals. As a Sacramento CA federal judge proved this week, the amount of recovery called for is often quite large in cases requiring ongoing care: $9.6 million.

On October 28, 2015, U.S. District Court Judge John Mendez ruled that Dr. Paul Davainis had waited too long to perform a C-section during a young child’s birth, despite evidence that the baby’s heart rate was worsening and that her mother would not be able to deliver the child normally. Accordingly, the federal judge awarded $9.6 million in damages to the 3-year-old girl, and an additional $250,000 in compensation for her mother, Micaela Palacio, due to her emotional distress during the delivery.

According to Judge Mendez, the girl will never be able to walk, talk, or care for herself. She cannot see and must be fed through a feeding tube into her stomach. She also suffers occasional seizures. Although we cannot imagine the pain and difficulty her and her family must endure every day, we are glad to see that they have now received at least some of the financial compensation they now need.

He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast.

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
