$24.2M Louisiana Jury Award

$24.2M Louisiana Jury Award
August 22, 2012 tfirestine

A jury in Jefferson Parish Louisiana has awarded $24.2M to the family of a brain damaged child who was injured during surgery by a malfunctioning infusion pump.

The medical device manufactures had previously settled and were not responsible for their 65% liability.  The hospital involved paid out $100,000 and the state patient compensation fund picked up the excess award.

Calculated Risk Advisors reminds it’s clients to insure they are properly covered by patient compensation funds to protect against unnecessary liability.
