Pennsylvania Mother Awarded $4.25M Malpractice Settlement


According to several media outlets, details of a $4.25M malpractice settlement for a Pennsylvania mom surfaced after Judge refuses to seal the case.

In Rare Ruling, Judge Rejects Defense Request

Jo Ann Page filed a lawsuit against Moses Taylor Hospital, Michael J. Kush, MD, Francis Hamm, MD, and Physicians Health Alliance of Carbondale after losing her unborn twin girls due to an undiagnosed case of preeclampsia.

In 2009, according to several media outlets, the doctors named in the lawsuit allegedly failed to properly monitor Page for the prenatal disorder, which is characterized by high blood pressure. Page then suffered a seizure, causing damage to the placenta in her womb, resulting in the death of her twins.

Page’s lawyer brokered a settlement of $4.25M, says media sources.
