This post is about a large verdict in Georgia after an awful circumcision mishap caused a boy serious and permanent injuries. In this post, I talk about this tragic case and I also take a deep dive into the statute of limitations in Georgia in birth injury cases.
The Big Verdict
A jury in Clayton County, Georgia awarded a mother and her four-year-old son $31 million for a circumcision gone wrong. This incidence of malpractice took place at an OB/GYN and pediatric clinic. This is a big verdict for the most common surgical procedure in the country and one that is rarely the subject of a malpractice lawsuit.
