Cerebral Palsy From Asphyxia Lawsuit Settlement

A Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit brought on behalf of a child with cerebral palsy recently settled for $1,950,000 for our client. The child suffered from fetal asphyxia which resulted in a cerebral palsy. She has significant developmental delays as a result of her injuries.

The lawsuit alleged that the defendant's hospital was negligent for failing to properly follow up after a significant drop in the amniotic fluid was noted. The suit alleged that this should have led to further evalutation and a recommendation that the expecting mother return to the hospital sooner. Expert testimony established that proper medical care would have prevented the injuries to the child.
