Largest Medical Malpractice Verdict In Baltimore: $55 Million Dollar Medical Malpractice Verdict Against Johns Hopkins Hospital

On March 26, 2010, the mother of baby Martinez was in labor and taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital. Upon examination by her doctors, obvious signs of fetal distress were displayed that required an emergency cesarean delivery, but were ignored.  Her doctors failed to timely intervene, by waiting more than two hours to deliver the baby. As a result of the doctors' negligence, the baby suffered permanent brain damage due to loss of oxygen, causing seizures, cerebral palsy, multiple mental and physical disabilities. Had the doctors not waited, and delivered the baby immediately, he would not have suffered from this tragic injury. After a two-week trial, a Baltimore City jury returned a record-setting verdict in the family's favor, $55 million.
