$1.7 Million For Nerve Damage Following Baby’s Birth
Hospital responsible for mother’s nerve damage due to negligent anti-nausea injection
The Post-Standard reports a New York state Supreme Court jury has awarded a home-care nurse almost $1.7 million for permanent nerve damage following her baby’s birth three years ago.
The lawsuit was filed against Community General Hospital after the hospital administered an intramuscular injection in an attempt to stop the woman’s vomiting following the birth of her third child. The suit claimed the injection was given too low causing damage to the woman’s sciatic nerve.
The 34-year-old mother now suffers from lower back pain and is unable to sit or stand for any length of time and has other physical problems as a result of the nerve damage. Although she still works as a home health care nurse, her doctors believe her condition will become worse.
