$4 million medical malpractice jury verdict. David Woodruff handled this birth injury case, which culminated in a 2-week jury trial in Colorado Springs. The case involved a physician who misplaced a “vacuum extraction device” while delivering the infant, causing the infant to become stuck in the birth canal for a period of 19 minutes. The child suffered permanent brain injuries from oxygen deprivation and intracranial bleeding. The jury deliberated for only two hours before handing down a verdict of $4 million.
