Family Awarded $26M in Birth Injury Case
A couple living in Brockton, MA, was recently awarded $26M in a birth injury suit that involved their brain-damaged son.
The suit was filed against the two doctors who were involved in the botched delivery that caused the boy’s current inability to walk and talk.
Delivery Gone Wrong
Dr. Julie D. Miner and Dr. Alisa B. Goldberg, both doctor’s working at the Boston teaching hospital, were named as the defendants in the suit.
The women reportedly failed to recognize signs of fetal distress during the birth and didn’t perform a Caesarean section fast enough.
Family Finds Relief
The damages against the two doctors resulted in the largest medical malpractice award this year and is said to be one of the largest in the state’s history.
“It’s a relief. We finally found out what happened to Jose,” said Jose Bejarano Sr., the father of the now 10- year-old boy who has cerebral palsy as the result of his birth injuries.
Bejarano and his wife, Maria, say the money they won in the suit will enable them to continue to provide Jose with the 24-hour care he needs.
“It’s for him, just to make his life better,” stated Bejarano.
