A Palm Beach County, Fla. jury has awarded $4 million to a family whose child was born with severe mental retardation more than 11 years ago at a Florida Hospital.
The family’s lawsuit contended that problems getting an operating room led to several hours of delay. They alleged their son suffered permanent brain damage that led to cerebral palsy and mental retardation because of the delay. The defendants argued that the complications came from the premature birth.
Following a seven-week trial, the jury concluded the hospital’s then-owner had been negligent in its care of the child.
