Joel and Shantiah Norfleet’s son, Jayla, was born in 2002 at the Harbor Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. Jayla, now ten years old, was born prematurely and with cerebral palsy.
The Norfleet family sued the Harbor Hospital, alleging that Jayla had lost too much oxygen while in his mother’s womb during his birth. The Norfleets maintained that the doctors should have performed a Caesarean section. Instead, the doctors allowed a natural birth, which caused Jayla to develop cerebral palsy.
The jury found the Harbor Hospital liable for the birth injury and awarded the Norfleet family $21 million in personal injury damages.
