Jacobs & Jacobs obtained a record verdict in the case of a boy who sustained severe brain damage at birth due to the negligence of the hospital and its personnel. During the trial, an offer of $2 million was rejected. The hospital appealed the verdict, and the Connecticut Supreme Court upheld the verdict. With post-judgment interest, the hospital’s insurance company paid out over $10.5 million.
As a result of this verdict, the parents were able to afford around-the-clock care for their son, as well as the intensive therapy that he will need for the rest of his life. The boy can live at home and travel with his family.
