A case involving a too common malpractice situation, a newborn sustaining brain damage at birth, has resulted in a jury awarding $38.8 million in damages.
Such a large verdict should be noted for the record, but there were not many details provided in the press release about the case. http://www.transworldnews.com/NewsStory.aspx?id=266757&cat=10
The jury verdict stemmed from a case where the failure to perform a C-section resulted in a newborn sustaining brain injury.
The press release provided by the Orlando, Fla.-based law firm that won the case, Morgan & Morgan, doesn’t name its clients or say where the verdict was rendered or against whom.
“Delayed C-sections, in cases where the standard of care dictates that the operation be performed, are serious acts of medical negligence than can result in irreversible injury to the baby, such as cerebral palsy and serious brain damage,” the press release says.
