$5,000,000 (Jury Verdict) --Medical Malpractice-- A hospital failed to adequately monitor a pregnant mother, and recognize the signs of fetal distress.

$4,750,000 --Medical Malpractice-- A hospital delivery lasted 26 hours, and was supervised only by a midwife. The infant suffered fetal acidosis and subsequent asphyxia. The hospital failed to follow protocol requiring pediatric presence, failed to recognize long runs of fetal tachycardia and fetal distress, and failed to perform a timely C-section. This led to cerebral palsy, spastic quadriplegia, and delayed development.
