$5 Million Settlement For Injured Newborn

The parents of a brain-damaged five-year-old boy have reached a $5 million settlement with a hospital in Massachusetts following a medical malpractice suit. Kendall and Michelle Turner accused a doctor and nurse at the Melrose-Wakefield hospital of making critical mistakes during the delivery of their son Dustin that led to the boy's life-long injuries. Dustin is unable to walk, talk or eat on his own. The Turners insist that Dustin's severe cerebral palsy could have been avoided had he been delivered by C-section, and demanded compensation for the irreversible damage to their child.
