24 July 2012 Published in Blog

This week KPRC, a local Houston TV station, highlighted the consequences of medical malpractice in the delivery room.

In the story, reporter Ed Greenberger reports that preventable birth injuries "happen more often that most health practitioners would like to admit."

They highlight a specific family in Connecticut saying:

"In May 2011, a Connecticut family was awarded $58 million after a jury ruled that their obstetrician made several errors during their son's delivery in 2003. The family's attorney argued that the baby should have been delivered two days before he actually was, when the mother's embryonic fluid experienced a significant decline. The son now suffers from a serious form of cerebral palsy and will not be able to perform many daily functions on his own throughout his entire life."
