$10 Million Settlement During Trial for Birth Injury

A physician failed to recognize the signs of distress from a drop in fetal heart rate during the delivery of a baby which resulted in decreased oxygen going to the baby’s brain and cerebral palsy. Tim Lawn analyzed the fetal monitor strips and was able to document that a timely C-section delivery would have prevented any injury. After Mr. Lawn had completed jury selection, the Hospital finally started settlement negotiations. As trial progressed, the child’s case was settled for $10,000,000, which ensured her future.
