A family has recently been awarded a judgment of $6.5 million in a medical malpractice lawsuit after a failure to diagnose intestinal problems led to the death of their 11-month-old child.

A woman in another state has recently been awarded a $68 million judgment after filing a products liability lawsuit against the company C. R. Bard Inc.
