A San Diego couple was awarded $16 million by a jury after their infant son died due to medical malpractice. Teresa Bailey was admitted to the hospital for an induced delivery due to concerns about the health of her baby. Ms. Bailey received very little medication while she was in the hospital awaiting childbirth. During the delivery of her son, the infant got trapped in the birth canal and the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck.

Following the infant’s death, the hospital’s pathologist lied to the mother and concealed the cause of death in the autopsy’s report. The pathologist said the infant died of lung disease.
