The family of a woman who died after childbirth was awarded $4.25 million by a jury in a medical malpractice lawsuit. The wrongful death lawsuit was brought in state court against the physicians at the medical center. The victim’s death occurred just 16 hours after giving birth to her son at the hospital. The doctors were aware than an ultrasound showed that the victim was bleeding near her kidneys. Unfortunately appropriate action was not taken until it was too late. The jury awarded the victim’s son $1.7 million for pain and suffering and $185,000 for loss of support and services. The jury awarded her husband $1.8 million for pain and suffering and $565,000 for loss of support and services. To read more about the medical malpractice lawsuit, please click the link.
