A Santa Fe jury has returned a record verdict for a medical malpractice case in New Mexico. The case arises from the injuries sustained by a little boy and his mom during his birth. Mom had diabetes during the pregnancy which can lead to excessive fetal growth. The standard of care required that her OB obtain serial ultrasounds to monitor Jonathan's growth and to recommend delivery by C-section if the baby grew in excess of 4,500 grams. OB did none of these things. Jonathan's birth weight was 5150 grams (11 pounds, 5 ounces). Due to his large size, he became stuck in the birth canal where he was without oxygen for 10 minutes. OB eventually used a suction device to yank him out of the birth canal causing a severe brachial plexus injury. Jonathan sustained a Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Injury due to the lack of oxygen. Mom sustained a fourth degree laceration running from the vagina through the anal sphincter when Jonathan was ripped out of the birth canal. 

Total verdict is $73.21 Million.

Presenters: B. Kent Buckingham, Esq. and Richard Barrera, Jr., Esq.
Moderator: Dusti Harvey, Esq.
