In Philadelphia, parent filed a medical malpractice (birth injury) action against Dr. S. in federal district court  (James McEldrew filing as the plaintiff attorney). The MCARE Fund defended Dr. S., and, although both lawyers and parties discussed settlement, the action proceeded to trial.   At trial, parent presented expert medical testimony to show that, before Parent gave birth to twins on November 4, 1995, Dr. S. failed to diagnose parent as suffering from a chorioamnionitis infection.   As a result of this failure, both babies were infected.   When the trial concluded, the jury awarded $6.25 million for our client’s injuries and $6.9 million for our other client’s injuries involved in same incident, for a total verdict of $13.15 million.
