A jury in Macon awarded $4.3 million for the death of a baby born 23 weeks into his mother’s pregnancy. The parents alleged their doctors failed to take steps to stop the early delivery.
The April 21 verdict found two obstetricians, Dr. Henry Davis and Dr. Kerry Holliman, each 50 percent responsible for the baby’s death. The damages included: $3.5 million for the life of the baby, Charles Dean, who died two days after birth; $200,000 for his pain and suffering; $600,000 for pain and suffering of his mother, Katherine Dean; and additional amounts for medical bills and funeral expenses.
