Medical Malpractice Suit Results in Verdict for Brain injured Child

Posted on Sep 01, 2009
A jury compensated the family of a brain damaged child $7.3 million in a medical negligence lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center over the hospital's alleged failure to quickly diagnose and treat a baby with meningitis.  The Los Angeles jury returned the unanimous verdict Friday in favor of the plaintiff Paris Campen, now 5, who suffered brain damage as a result of the illness.  The lawsuit was filed in 2005 and alleged that doctors in the hospital's neonatal intensive care unit were negligent.
