Illinois jury awards $12 million in birth injury medical malpractice

In an Illinois medical malpractice lawsuit, a DuPage County jury recently awarded $12 million to a Warrenville, Illinois couple whose 7 year-old son became disabled at birth. The 7 year-old cannot speak and has no control over his limbs due to a medical malpractice birth injury.
