Johns Hopkins Hospital Sued for Malpractice, Family Awarded $55m

A Maryland family has been awarded $55 million by a jury after their child suffered permanent and severe birth injuries at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The parents maintain that if the mother was given an emergency C-section, their son would be a normal, healthy two-year-old.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the parents accuse the hospital staff of negligence after the mother was forced to wait for a Caesarean section that was never performed. She says her son lost oxygen, causing him to develop cerebral palsy, because of their delay.

The family was awarded $25 million for past and future medical expenses, $26 million for pain and suffering, and $4 million for future lost wages. Due to the state cap, they will walk away with only $29.6 million of their verdict.
