Family awarded millions in birth injury lawsuit

Posted on September 20th, 2011 No Comments

A Connecticut family was awarded $58.6 million by a jury, a record medical malpractice verdict in Connecticut, against the parents’ obstetrician. The parents’ child, who is now 8 years-old, suffered severe brain trauma during delivery, which the jury found the obstetrician caused.

The son will never be able to walk, talk, or eat on his own for the rest of his life due to the injuries he sustained. The $58.6 million will cover his life-long needed medical care, nursing care, and adaptive equipment. Massive brain trauma occurred when the physician failed to relieve pressure on the woman’s upper uterus, which would have lessened birth trauma, as well as when he or she delayed the delivery via cesarean section.

If your child has suffered from birth trauma due to negligence or errors on the part of a medical professional, contact Cincinnati birth injury attorney at Stepleton & Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733.
