$1.55 Million for a Child Injured by Overventilation in the NICU

The Michigan cerebral palsy lawyers at ABC Law Centers obtained $1.55 million for a child with cerebral palsy due to mismanaged breathing problems (overventilation after birth & hypocarbia).

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 a hole in his lungs (pneumothorax) and hypocarbia (reduced carbon dioxide in the blood).  The baby’s poorly managed breathing resulted in hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) and permanent brain damage. Now approaching his teens, the child has cerebral palsy and difficulty walking.  The award-winning Michigan cerebral palsy lawyers at Reiter & Walsh obtained $1.55 million for this child who was permanently injured after birth.
