Family wins $3 million in midwife medical malpractice case

The family of a disabled 10-year old girl recently won $3 million in a medical malpractice case involving a midwife that helped in the child’s delivery.

The girl was born with a rare genetic disorder called Kabuki Syndrome, but the jury decided that this was not the only reason for the girl’s medical problems.¬†According to the lawsuit, the girl suffered birth injuries due to a lack of oxygen during her delivery. ¬†In addition, the suit says that fetal monitors at the hospital showed the child was deprived of oxygen.

The jury voted 6-3 to award the girl’s family $2.3 million for future medical expenses, $345,000 for past medical expenses, and $500,000 for permanent disability.
