The large medical malpractice settlement did not come without sacrifice. Illinois medical malpractice plaintiff, Vanessa Jenkins, brought a lawsuit against an Illinois hospital after her son was delivered with a birth defect. Her son sustained brain injuries and other personal injuries as a result of the hospital’s negligent misconduct. The negligent doctor who used a vacuum extractor during delivery of the child caused the child to suffer from serious personal injuries including brain injuries, mental retardation and cerebral palsy.
