Earlier this month a jury delivered an $18.5 million verdict for a child with cerebral palsy.
The complaint alleged that the child, now 12 years old obtained brain damage due to a lack of oxygen at birth. The lack of oxygen was apparently evident on the fetal monitoring strips indicating the need for medical intervention in the way of an emergency c-section.
A lack of oxygen during birth is a very serious complication often resulting in a birth injury to the child. If your child suffered a lack of oxygen at birth please call our firm for a free consultation to discuss your options.
