Medical Malpractice Settlement for Child with Cerebral Palsy

 

A doctor and hospital failed to put the safety of a young, first-time mother and her baby. By ignoring warning signs of fetal distress, the doctor failed to assess the condition of both mom and baby.  Because of this, the full-term and otherwise healthy baby was not delivered until after suffering perinatal asphyxia; a lack of oxygen to the brain that caused irreversible brain damage.  The child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy and global developmental delay and cannot walk, talk or care for herself.

The settlement was reached during litigation with the hospital and physician.
