Augusta, GA -- Ms. Perkins represented the family of a child who died after a treating neonatologist improperly placed an umbilical venous catheter tip into the right atrium of the baby's heart rather than properly placing the tip into the baby’s inferior vena cava.  This medical malpractice case settled for $300,000.
