Mother and son awarded $45M in medical malpractice case

In what doubtlessly sounds like a nightmare for any New York parent, a mother filed a lawsuit when the failure of health care professionals eventually resulted in the permanent brain damage of her infant son. A jury in another state awarded the mother and her child $45 million in the medical malpractice case. The suit alleged that an initial failure to diagnose a leg fracture eventually resulted in permanent brain trauma caused by abuse at the hands of the child's father.

Medical malpractice guilty verdict worth $2.4M in damages

Though it did not happen in the state of New York, a recent lawsuit ended with a jury finding a doctor liable for $2.4 million in damages. The medical malpractice suit was filed after the defendant's failure to appropriately treat a patient resulted in the man's death. The 72-year-old individual arrived at a hospital with complaints of rubbery legs and weakness; three days later he was dead.
