Cerebral Palsy Lawyers / Attorneys Secure $ 5.5 Million in Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
On Friday of last week a Chicago family agreed to a settlement of $5.5 million for the injury their son obtained during birth.
The court documents stated that on March 1, 2002 Eva Liberato, of Northlake was given the labor inducing drug pitocin. The family’s doctor attempted to deliver the child with a vacuum and forceps; however the child was not descending properly. The family alleged that during this time the child’s heart rate dropped and that this drop caused a lack of oxygen to the brain that ultimately resulted in the child’s cerebral palsy.
