Jury awards family $55M in Hopkins malpractice case, largest in state history
If a team of doctors and nurses at Johns Hopkins Hospital had performed the surgery earlier, Enso Martinez and Rebecca Fielding contend, their son, Enzo, would now be a normal 2-year-old boy. Instead, the child sat in his parents' arms Tuesday, severely and permanently mentally and physically disabled. Their saga and evidence presented in their court case convinced a Baltimore Circuit Court jury to award them $55 million—one of the largest malpractice judgments in Maryland history, according to trial lawyers and legal experts.
