Welcoming a child into the world, and then raising them, teaching them and loving them, is a dream come true for many couples. Although more often than not, the birthing process goes off without any problems, there are situations where the mother or child are injured due to the negligence of a medical professional. If someone suffers injuries, it is crucial to not wait to take legal action because time could be a factor in filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our expert Massachusetts birth injury attorneys here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have spent the last three decades recovering millions of dollars in damages for our clients.
An 11 year-old girl with cerebral palsy has settled her birth injury case by a €10 million lump sum payment for her High Court action. The suit was brought against the Health Service Executive over the circumstances of her birth at the Mayo General Hospital. The young girl’s mother Ciara Hynes was admitted to the Mayo General Hospital on September 27, and the next morning they started to induce the birth and syntocinon was commenced around noon. Rachel was born in poor condition at 6:22 p.m.
Her claim alleges that there was a failure to properly manage and monitor the labor, delivery, and birth of the baby, because there was a failure between 2:44 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to recognize, notice or act upon the unsatisfactory and highly suspicious pattern evidenced on the CTG trace. Plaintiff further alleged that there was a failure to take any action or any sufficiently proper or timely action to obtain specialist advice as to the condition of the baby and the steps which ought to have been taken under the circumstances.
