$40M to Delco girl with spinal injury in medical malpractice case

$40M to Delco girl with spinal injury in medical malpractice case

Over $40 million has been awarded to a 6-year-old Pennsylvania girl whose spine was injured during birth. The girl and her twin sister were delivered at Delaware County Memorial Hospital in Drexel Hill in February 2013. During the delivery, in which the baby was in a breach position, the girl became paralyzed from the "mid-chest" down. Her parents alleged in the lawsuit that the doctor did not properly protect the baby’s head and neck during a high-risk procedure. The $40.3 million verdict is one of the largest jury awards in that county in recent years.
