$24,870,000 Jury Verdict in Child Abuse Case

Atlanta Attorneys Cale Conley and Richard Griggs Obtain $24,870,000 Jury Verdict in Child Abuse Case

Cale Conley and Richard Griggs obtained this significant verdict in Fayetteville, N.C. following a nearly five-week jury trial against a regional hospital on behalf of a quadriplegic boy and his father. The jury agreed that the hospital staff failed to recognize that the boy suffered from well-known signs of abuse and failed to follow hospital policy relating to reporting and investigating child abuse. The boy was discharged from the hospital and back into a dangerous environment in his home where he ultimately received a depressed skull fracture and resulting permanent brain trauma from a failure to timely render aid.
