Jurors Wednesday handed down a $24.5 million award against a team of doctors for the death of a Florida woman hours after childbirth.
According to a complaint filed in the case, Torres died following massive bleeding that plaintiffs contend was caused by complications during Vargas’s birth.
The defendants, including Drs. Adolfo Gonzalez-Garcia, Jorge Gallo, Julio Coello, and Kei Nakanishi, and Phoenix Obstetrics Gynecology, LLC, conceded the issue of negligence. And the two-day trial centered on the impact Torres’s death had on the family.
