Cerebral Palsy due to delay in delivery – £3,700,000

During Mrs Clarke’s first labour progress was very slow and the baby became distressed. The CTG monitor showed evidence that the baby was in distress but no action was taken to expedite delivery and when she was eventually born, Mrs Clarke’s daughter, Sarah was in a very poor condition. Sarah had suffered a serious brain injury as a result of the delay in delivery and she went on to develop cerebral palsy.

We issued court proceedings for Sarah following which the hospital admitted liability and agreed to pay compensation to Sarah for the injuries that she had suffered.
