$5 Million Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Settlement in A Brain Damaged Lawsuit

Doctor and nurse at Melrose-Wakefield hospital in Massachusetts has agreed to settle a medical malpractice lawsuit for $5 million with the New Hampshire parents of a brain-damaged five-year-old boy.

Michelle and Kendall Turner of Bedford said critical mistakes were made during the delivery of their son, Dustin, in 2001. The Turners contend that Dustin should have been delivered by emergency C-section and that if he had, he wouldn’t have sustained severe cerebral palsy that left him unable to walk, talk or eat on his own.

It’s believed to be one of the largest pretrial medical malpractice settlements in Massachusetts’ history.
