Federal Government to Pay $29 Million in Medical Malpractice Suit
The family of Christian Arroyo was awarded $29.1 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit against the federal government. The verdict will address the damages suffered by Christian due to severe birth injuries.
Christian suffered serious brain damage during birth in 2003. As a result, he now has cerebral palsy and is a quadriplegic. The brain injuries were suffered at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
The medical malpractice lawsuit was brought against the federal government because the negligent doctors worked for a federally funded clinic. These claims are governed by the Federal Tort Claims Act, which allows personal injury victims to sue the federal government. These cases must be held as a bench trial without a jury.
When medical errors result in a birth injury to your child, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your child's injuries. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you receive damages to cover your child's increased medical expenses, long term care, and pain and suffering.
