Financial compensation, in France, after switching babies at birth


The court also ordered the Clinica Jourdan and an insurance company to pay 300,000 euros ($340,000) to each of three parents involved in the case and 60,000 euros ($68,000) each for three brothers and sisters involved. A nurse’s assistant accidentally handed that baby of Sophie Serrano, a baby-girl, from an incubator at the clinic, to a wrong mother, in July 1994. Sophie received another child. DNA tests showed the truth three years later, when the girl Manon Serrano had  an appearance different from his parents. The court did not convict two doctors and the nurse’s assistant. The girls choice was to remain with their non-biological mothers. Such situations occur from time to time in the medical system.
