Fetal tests indicated likelihood of macrosomia (large baby), requiring additional ultrasound testing during pregnancy and pre-delivery. Tests never conducted and vaginal delivery attempted instead of scheduling a C-section. Eventual C-section resulted in brain and nerve damage. Jury verdict for $20 Million to child; $13 Million to mother, and $40 Million in punitive damages.
