$4,000,000 Brain Injury-Pretrial Settlement (Illinois)

After a woman goes into labor, doctors will monitor the baby’s heart rate. This is called fetal heart rate monitoring. If the baby gets in trouble during labor-has trouble getting oxygen-the baby’s heart rate will change. Doctors and nurses are trained to watch for these changes. If these changes are serious and persistent, they are required to get the baby out, usually by caesarean section as quickly as possible. In this case, the baby began to show signs of distress-she was being deprived of oxygen-but these signs were missed, delaying the baby’s delivery. As a result, the baby was deprived of oxygen and suffered severe brain injury. Brain injuries like this are called, cerebral palsy.
