Verdict of $3.27M in Botched Baby Delivery

October 29, 2010

I find it encouraging that during these times of hostility towards the victims of injury, a panel of jurors can still find it in the law and in their heart to compensate parents for the injuries that a doctor has caused to their child… an injury that a 20 second consultation may have avoided!

Each year thousands of patients are seriously injured and/or killed due to avoidable medical negligence. The best way to combat the existence of medical malpractice is not by making it harder for the victims of injury to take their case to court, it is instead by providing a system whereby medical negligence is reduced.

A couple from Chicago’s Heart of Chicago neighborhood won a $3.27 million judgment this week when a jury found their obstetrician was liable for injuries their boy suffered during birth.

Galecio and Maria Rodriguez sued Dr. Jennifer Friedman and the Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group in 2005, arguing that Friedman never considered a Caesarean section on Feb. 3, 2002, despite signs that Mateo Rodriguez, now 8, was an unusually large baby, according to the couples lawsuit.A jury sided with the parents on Monday, awarding them $3.27 million, court records indicate.
