Family Awarded $55 Million in Tragic Medical Malpractice Case

Parents Enso Martinez and Rebecca Fielding of Waverly, Maryland were awarded $55 million in compensation because of medical malpractice that left their newborn son with severe brain damage.

After developing complications during their home birth, Enso and Rebecca rushed to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. Doctors ordered an emergency C-section, but waited two hours. As a result, baby Enzo was deprived of oxygen and is now suffering from cerebral palsy and seizure disorder, which require 24-hour care.

Johns Hopkins Hospital denies that it was negligent in caring for Mrs Fielding and plans to appeal the decision.
