The United States of America was recently named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a woman in a state outside Missouri. The woman filed the legal claim in relation to doctor negligence that she claims occurred before her now 5-year-old daughter was born. The incidents in question reportedly happened while the woman was married to a United States Army captain and was stationed at Fort Knox.
The labor and delivery of the woman's infant took place in June 2010 and lasted for a reported 13 1/2 hours. Reports indicate that the baby suffered intracerebral and interventricular hemorrhages immediately after the birth. The newly born child is also said to have exhibited seizures not long after she was born.
