$10.2 Mil. Verdict Reached In Child's Wrongful Death

$10.2 Mil. Verdict Reached In Child's Wrongful Death
A U.S. District judge has awarded a Florida couple $10.2 million in a wrongful death suit they filed against a U.S. Naval Hospital in Jacksonville over brain damage their son suffered at birth, attributing to his death. The suit claimed doctors at the hospital were negligent and failed to realize the boy's umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck at birth, leading to brain damage. The damages were brought down from an initial $60.5 million ruling after an appeals court ruled that damages "could not exceed the highest affirmed wrongful death verdict in the state appellate district where the death took place."  John Pacenti, Law.com  09/27/2010
