Family awarded $58.6mil in birth injury lawsuit

The parents of a boy who suffered massive brain damage during delivery have been awarded $58.6 million by a Connecituct jury this week. This is a record for the largest medical malpractice verdict in the state. The family filed a lawsuit against the wife's obstetrician, who was found to have caused his injuries by delaying delivery via cesarean section.

The boy, who is now eight years-old, will not be able walk, talk, or eat on his own for the rest of his life. The $58.6 million will go towards the child's lifetime need of nursing care, medical care, and adaptive equipment.

If your child has suffered from severe brain and spinal damage during birth, contact the Charleston birth injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm at 843-720-2800.
