$101M verdict for baby born with brain damage

The family of a baby who was brain damaged at birth at an Oak Park, Illinois, Hospital received a $101 million medical malpractice verdict from a jury.

“We have waited a long time for this and, even though Gerald Junior cannot talk in the same way as all of us and will never be able to talk in the same way as all of us, I wanted his voice to be heard,” Snow said in a statement.

Attorneys said that medical personnel at West Suburban Medical Center ignored Sallis’ external fetal monitoring strips for six hours before and during his delivery on Aug. 9, 2014. Experts testified that he would have been born a normal baby if nurses and other medical staff alerted doctors to the abnormalities and performed a C-section.
