Because of the cost of expert testimony and lawyers’ fees, many lawsuits involving negligence in the medical field can be extremely expensive. As a result, when the damages are small, such lawsuits often might not be worth the costs of litigation. However, when injuries are egregious enough and fault can be shown, large awards in medical malpractice cases are frequently awarded by juries to people and families who have suffered. In the case of a medical injury, it may be wise to contact an expert medical malpractice attorney at 617-787-3700.
In March 2011, Grayson Charlton’s mother to be went into labor at the Delaware County Memorial Hospital. She was pregnant with twins.

During this process, the spine of Grayson snapped, and she will now spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair unable to care for herself. Estimates of her future medical expenses are around $29 million. After a lengthy and hotly contested trial, a jury awarded the family $40 million in damages, a Delaware County record for a personal injury case. The plaintiff was represented by attorney Timothy Lawn of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
