Damages awarded for injury at birth

Posted in: Birth Injury Head and Brain Injuries Medical Negligence 

A mother has won her 14-year legal battle for medical negligence compensation after her son suffered severe brain damage at birth, reports the Guardian.

Clare Scott claims that during her labour, her son Charlie’s umbilical cord was wrapped around his shoulders for 20 minutes in the womb before it was noticed by midwives.

Even after the problem was picked up, medical staff at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital Trust failed to act quickly enough, and Charlie was starved of oxygen. He was left with severe cerebral palsy, and requires constant care.

The courts awarded Charlie, who is now 14, £7.1 million in compensation, which will be paid to him in annual payments to ensure he receives the necessary care for the rest of his life.
