Evans v. University of Maryland Medical System

September 2014

The University of Maryland Medical System was ordered by a Baltimore City jury verdict to pay $3 million for committing medical malpractice during the delivery of a baby girl.  On September 5, 2014, after a two-week trial, the verdict was rendered in the Plaintiff's favor.  The obstetricians acted negligently by not conducting a cesarean delivery (against the mother's request) and pulling excessively on the baby's head, while trying to release a shoulder dystocia (a stuck shoulder), during the delivery.  As a result of the negligence, the baby is permanently paralyzed in her arm due to nerve damage.
