Family awarded $74 million for doctor's neglience

Although women in New York City give birth every single day, doctors must use caution when they are delivering babies. Sadly, simple mistakes can result in lifelong consequences. When mistakes are made, however, families may be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the negligent parties.

In 2009, a baby girl suffered brain injuries at birth. She is now three years old and has cerebral palsy. After her birth, the baby's family sued the doctor who delivered her claiming that the mistakes he made caused her to suffer brain damage. Recently, a jury awarded the family $74 million for the doctor's improper handling of the baby's birth.

Cerebral palsy often occurs when a baby is deprived of oxygen during delivery. Someone with cerebral palsy will often require lifelong medical care. A child may need to work with physical and occupational therapists, speech pathologists and psychologists. With so much care required, medical bills can soon become unmanageable.

As evidenced by this family's recent medical malpractice case, families whose children suffer from cerebral palsy due to mistakes made by a physician may be awarded compensation.

New York City residents who believe a doctor's errors caused their child to suffer brain damage would be wise to consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. An attorney can investigate the evidence in a case and fight to get families the compensation they deserve.

People rely on their physicians to properly care for them. When a doctor's negligence causes harm to a patient, they should be held responsible.
