$5.45 Million Settlement Secured In Birth Injury Case
Donahue & Horrow LLP obtained a $5,450,000 settlement for a mother and her two-year-old son following a negligent prenatal and labor and delivery that injured the baby, causing not only a brain injury (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy) but also spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy.
Following a non-complicated pregnancy, our client, a young mother, went to the hospital to give birth to her son. Unfortunately, the hospital and her doctors performed their duties well below the standard of care. One example; despite signs during labor that the baby was in distress, neither the attending physicians nor hospital employees acted quickly enough to ensure the baby was delivered quickly and healthy. Additionally, after the baby was born, the physicians failed to properly follow “the cooling protocol,” standard in such cases. As a result, the baby has severe and permanent injuries.
Thankfully, with the large settlement that Donahue & Horrow LLP was able to secure for the family, the mother will be able to secure lifelong care for her baby and have the ability to attend to his needs as he grows older and needs around-the-clock care.
