$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.

Teenage drivers must know these things...

Teenage drivers must know these things...

Great advice from out friends at Indiana Electric Cooperatives. 

For an inexperienced teenaged driver, wrecking the family car is almost a rite of passage. The only way for young drivers to gain experience is by getting behind the wheel and putting miles behind them.

Some dangers, though, cannot be learned from personal “experience.” Take this example: an accident involving a utility pole. How the driver and passengers handle themselves in those moments after the car comes to a stop may mean the difference between life and death.

Senior Home Accused of Abandoning Residents as Wildfire Nears

Residents in a senior living center in Santa Rosa have filed suit against the facility's owners, claiming that staffers abandoned them in the face of last month's devastating wildfire. In a lawsuit filed Monday in Sonoma County Superior Court, four residents of the now-destroyed Villa Capri assisted living center said they were abandoned by the staff, along with “other residents in wheelchairs, and other residents with dementia who were physically and cognitively incapable of escaping a burning building without assistance.”
