Mishandled Labor and Delivery Results in Cerebral Palsy

$3,150,000

Litigation Type - Birth Injuries

Client Injury - Cerebral Palsy

Our client was a young girl who was 5 years old at the time of settlement in a case involving events surrounding the girls's birth. The medical personnel attending the birth failed to recognize non-reassuring signs and the mother was allowed to continue in labor until the baby had suffered asphyxia prior to birth. The asphyxia resulted in neurological impairments to the girl's motor skills (including spastic quadriparetic cerebral palsy and a very limited ability to communicate), but she is described by her therapists as being extremely intelligent, diligent and highly motivated.

John Carey recovered $3,150,000 for her injuries. This recovery was used to purchase an annuity which will pay $9,000,000 over child's lifetime.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
