Posted by: DO/Tuesday, January 30, 2018/Categories: In The News

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.

The $40.3 million verdict is one of the largest jury awards in that county in recent years.
