Superior Court upholds $10.1M verdict, rules on medical costs

In a decision that included important rulings on medical costs for victims of medical malpractice, Pennsylvania Superior Court has upheld a $10.1 million verdict against Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

The recent ruling stemmed from a case in which a Philadelphia Common Pleas jury in late 2015 found for a mother and her son, whose delayed diagnosis for meningitis at the CHOP emergency room resulted in deafness and developmental and learning delays.
