Connecticut Supreme Court Upholds $34 Million Award Obtained By Walsh Woodard Against UConn Health
On February 6, 2024, in a unanimous and precedent-setting decision, the Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed a trial court’s award of $34 million award obtained by Walsh Woodard against UConn Health Center. The case arose from negligent fertility and prenatal treatment rendered by UConn Health to our clients in their attempts to conceive a child. Unfortunately, due to the medical malpractice committed by the defendant, our clients conceived twins who suffered a serious infection which caused the stillbirth of their daughter and devastating physical and neurological injuries to their son. The Supreme Court’s recent decision affirmed the trial court’s findings that UConn Health committed medical malpractice and upheld, in its entirety, the $34 million judgment issued by the trial court in June 2021.
