Cerebral Palsy Lawsuit Verdict for $43 Million

0 Comment

A jury recently awarded a 25 year old woman with cerebral palsy a verdict of $43 million dollars against the hospital where she was born.  The jury found that the negligence of the hospital caused her cerebral palsy.  She is confined to a wheelchair and has very limited communication abilities.  She is unable to live independently.

The amount is the total amount of the award into the future and not the present value of the judgment.  The award included compensation for home health care expenses, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost earnings.  The suit alleged that the woman suffered her brain injuries as a result of lack of oxygen and other negligent care at the time of her birth.
