As for the lawsuit, “I thought it would have been over by now,” she said. “It was hard going through it initially, but now it is just going on in the background.
“I try to be a positive person and not look back at what could have happened. If I did that, I would just cry every day.”
For the record: An April 17 story titled “Case may set legal precedent” incorrectly reported court records showed Nancy Leung, the mother of a boy who suffered a disability after birth, called the hospital three days after her son was born. Court records state Ms. Leung called her pediatrician, not the hospital. Also, the story mistakenly stated the jury awarded $78 million in past medical costs to the Leung family. The correct amount of the award of past costs was $78,000. The total estimated value of the award in the case, as reported, is $96 million. If the award is upheld, it would be paid using an annuity with a present-day value estimated at $15 million, according to the hospital’s attorneys.
