$2.225 Million for Michigan Child with Cerebral Palsy & Erb’s Palsy caused by Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), Birth Trauma & Mismanaged Gestational Diabetes
The award-winning Michigan birth injury attorneys at ABC Law Centers secure a $2.225 million settlement for a child injured by negligence during the birth and delivery process.
Plaintiff had gestational diabetes. A week before delivery, the fetus was estimated to weigh about eight pounds. Doctors noted the possibility of a high birth weight baby, but did not offer a C-section. During delivery, shoulder dystocia occurred (baby’s shoulder gets stuck preventing delivery). However, despite attempts to correct the situation, the infant remained stuck for four minutes. The child was born weighing more than 11 pounds. He suffered brain injury as a result of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (lack of oxygen to the brain) and trauma. He has since been diagnosed with Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy as a result of birth trauma.
