Cerebral Palsy due to failure to recognise cephalo-pelvic disproportion during labour – £3,205,000

Toby was born after a prolonged labour during which a forceps delivery was attempted by a junior doctor who had failed to appreciate that Toby was a very large baby and would not fit through his mother’s pelvis. After the failed attempt at forceps delivery, a caesarean section was performed but by that time Toby had suffered brain damage and he went on to develop Cerebral Palsy.

We pursued a claim on Toby’s behalf and after court proceedings were issued, the hospital admitted liability and agreed to pay compensation for Toby’s injuries.
