Family of Boy Disabled at Birth Awarded $32 Million

Oct 22, 2004 | AP

A Cook County jury has awarded 32 (m) million dollars to the family of a seven-year-old boy who was disabled at birth.

The jury ruled yesterday that St. Francis Hospital in Blue Island and Doctor Mary Ann Dean-Onayemi were negligent in Tairay Sewell's injuries.

Tairay is confined to a wheelchair. He can't walk, speak or eat on his own. The family attorney says his injuries occurred because the medical staff didn't intervene when problems arose during his birth.

His mother, 27-year-old Misty Campbell, says the money will allow her to buy everything her son needs, including a wheelchair-accessible van, house and therapy.

Spokeswoman Debra Robbins says hospital officials are disappointed with the verdict. She says the medical staff acted appropriately.
