$1.55 Million for Child with Cerebral Palsy Due to Overventilation After Birth and Hypocarbia (Reduced Carbon Dioxide in the Blood)
Detroit, Michigan Cerebral Palsy Lawyers
Plaintiff-mother was 17 years old when she delivered her first child nine weeks early. Complaining of contractions, she went to the hospital and delivered within a few hours. Minutes after birth, the baby had difficulty breathing because he was premature and was placed on a ventilator. The ventilator was poorly controlled, and the baby was over-ventilated, which caused holes in his lungs, and resulted in brain damage. Now approaching his teens, the child has cerebral palsy and difficulty walking.
