Pennsylvania: Hospital Negligent in Childbirth Delivery

Counsel Financial

Plaintiff was pregnant with twins and had labor induced. The staff did not continuously monitor both of the babies' heart rates, and the second baby shifted to a breech position. His birth was delayed by 20 minutes, which caused him to be deprived of oxygen and later diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Pre?trial, the parties agreed to try the case with high/low parameters of $5.75 million and $33 million. The jury found the hospital 100% negligent for failure of the nursing staff to monitor the infant's vitals.

VERDICT: $21,600,000
