A Philadelphia jury has awarded $10.1M to a mother and son for the failure of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to diagnose bacterial meningitis in the boy despite several trips to the emergency room. The child, now 6, suffers from hearing loss, language disorder, developmental and learning delays, and a loss of balance. The trial lasted 4 weeks, but the jury made its decision in 3 hours.
