A Baltimore City jury last week awarded $4.1 million for a birth injury to a now 8-year-old boy. Plaintiff’s lawsuit claimed the child’s cerebral palsy was caused by negligence before and during delivery of the child at the University of Maryland Medical Center.
This is a big verdict, much of it in economic damages. If it stands, the award will be reduced to $3.6 million after the cap on noneconomic damages.
Congratulations to plaintiff’s malpractice lawyer Keith Foreman, a former student of mine at the University of Baltimore School of Law. The Maryland Daily Record provides more details.
