Three Families Suing Same Oregon Hospital Over Birth Injuries


Three families in Oregon are filing separate multi-million dollar lawsuits against the same hospital after their children were born with brain damage and cerebral palsy.

The hospital involved in the lawsuit, Silverton Hospital, is located in Marion County. Two of the families claim that their children were born with permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy because of mistakes made in the delivery room at the hospital.

Another family claims that its child was born lifeless and that the hospital took too long to revive him, which deprived him from oxygen and caused brain damage.

Each family is seeking about $40 million in damages. The hospital has not commented on the lawsuits.
