Jury in Birth Injury Malpractice Case Awards $13 Million

Posted by Kevin Dugan on October 10, 2013

A Flint Michigan mother has been awarded $13 million in her lawsuit against Genesys Regional Medical Center in Michigan.  The medical malpractice trial concerned allegations that medical errors during childbirth left the woman's daughter disfigured and without the full use of her right arm.

According to the lawsuit, the nerves controlling her daughter's right arm were severed when resident doctors pulled down too hard on the baby's head after the 8 pound, 8 ounce baby got stuck during childbirth on Jan. 1, 2008. 

As a result of the injuries sustained during birth, the child has undergone multiple surgeries and continues to wear a brace on her right arm.
