$55 million verdict in Baltimore medical malpractice suit

A child's cerebral palsy was blamed on doctors in a medical malpractice lawsuit filed against Johns Hopkins after a 2010 birth resulted in a delayed C-section, which deprived the unborn child of oxygen. Apparently a Baltimore, Maryland, jury agreed and awarded the family an unprecedented $55 million in damages. Initially, the mother attempted to give birth at home with the services of a midwife, however when the child became caught during delivery, she was rushed to the hospital for an emergency C-section.

Fireworks injuries have East Coast authorities revisiting laws

As is the case every July 4th holiday, a slew of injuries resulting from fireworks are making the rounds in the Maryland media. Last week three children and several others were injured in various accidents involving fireworks in one state. Three children suffered such serious burn injuries they had to be airlifted to local hospitals for treatment. One of the accidents involved four youngsters setting off a batch of sparklers inside a bottle causing the bottle to explode.
Another accident in a different state injured 13 people, including three children who were all burned. Some of the victims were seriously injured when a firework went astray igniting the supplies of what was supposed to be a large fireworks display in a residential neighborhood. The accident resulted in the removal of 90 cases of fireworks from the home. Fireworks are by their very nature dangerous and every year result in serious burns and disfigurement to those either involved in their lighting or standing nearby.
