Child's brain injury results in $15.2M judgment against hospital

Parents of children born with heart defects or other life threatening illnesses are often very cautious about medicines they give their children. After undergoing countless hours in the hospital, no one in Massachusetts or anywhere else wants to unnecessarily return to a medical center due to a negative drug interaction. But that is exactly what happened to one family whose 4-year old suffered heart failure and a brain injury upon receiving improper medical advice from a doctor.

Family recovers $5.25 million for newborn brain injury

When a pregnant woman visits a hospital to have a baby, it is unlikely that there will be complications.  Most full term pregnancies in Massachusetts and across the country result in a healthy child. Even if a woman undergoes a C-section, modern medicine and proper doctor training have rendered this procedure to be generally safe for the mother and baby. However, when an obstetrician or other doctor makes a mistake handling a labor and delivery, the result can be catastrophic. A baby can suffer severe brain injuries that can prevent him or her from ever living a normal life.
