Federal appeals court upheld $29M medical malpractice verdict

Federal appeals court upheld $29M medical malpractice verdict

A federal appeals court has recently upheld a $29.1 million medical malpractice verdict that was awarded to a Gurnee boy after a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The lawsuit stated that government-employed doctors at Chicago’s Northwestern Hospital were negligent when they did not take the appropriate measure to prevent from infection and failed to diagnose a neonatal infection.

This then caused the child to be born with serious brain damage and he now suffers from cerebral palsy and is a quadriplegic. The government appealed the $29.1 million verdict claiming that it was past the statue of limitations, but an appeals court recently upheld the verdict.
