Johns Hopkins Bayview Lawsuits in the News

In 2019, a plaintiff who filed a medical malpractice case against Johns Hopkins Bayview was awarded over $200 million by a jury, making it the largest verdict of its kind in U.S. history. Erica Byrom sued the hospital after being admitted at 25 weeks pregnant and suffering from severe high blood pressure due to preeclampsia. While her baby was still in the womb, the doctors trusted to care for her determined that the fetus was non-viable, information that Byrom’s attorney, Keith D. Forman of Wais, Vogelstein, Forman & Offutt, alleged was incorrect. Based on the medical team’s assessment, all fetal monitoring was ceased and Byrom declined a C-section as her baby’s brain was slowly starved of oxygen. When Byrom eventually gave birth to her daughter Zubida, the infant was diagnosed with severe and permanent brain damage which the jury determined was a direct result of malpractice by Johns Hopkins Bayview doctors.

While Johns Hopkins Bayview is more likely to attract media attention as the defendant in a case, the hospital can also be a plaintiff. Recently it received backlash along with Johns Hopkins Hospital, another facility in the Johns Hopkins network, for filing thousands of lawsuits since 2009 against patients with unpaid medical bills. Many of these defendants contend they were disproportionally targeted for litigation because they are African-American and from lower income areas of Baltimore, and that the hospital never informed them of available financial assistance to help cover the cost of their medical care.
