$30 Million Awarded in C-Section Birth Malpractice Suit

Posted under Uncategorized

A $30 million judgment was handed down earlier this month by jurors in a medical malpractice suit in Florida. Jurors decided that the family of Jacob Tomlian was entitled to the compensation for injuries Tomlian sustained due to Westside Regional Medical Center’s delay in administering a Caesarean section. According to the suit, Dr. Mark Grenitz ought to have performed the C-section procedure earlier, after signs of fetal distress showed on the heart monitor.

Today, Tomlian is 16, suffering from cerebral palsy, severe mental retardation, and partial deafness.
