Posted by: Salvatore J. Zambri, founding member and senior trial attorney.
A Connecticut jury has awarded a local couple $58.6 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit, a record for a single incident of medical malpractice in the state of Connecticut. The lawsuit was against a physician and his practice, and it was shown that the doctor waited too long to perform a cesarean section during the wife’s labor, which caused the child to be born with permanent brain damage. The boy suffers from cerebral palsy and is unable to eat, walk or talk.
The recovery will allow the boy and his family to cover medical expenses and other losses the boy will endure for the rest of his life.
