Mother wins compensation for son brain-damaged at birth

Posted in: Birth Injury Head and Brain Injuries Medical Negligence 

A mother has successfully claimed compensation on behalf of her son, who suffered severe brain damage at birth as a result of errors by medical staff, reports the Daily Mail.

Clare Scott pursued her claim against the Royal Bournemouth Hospital Trust for 12 years, after the Trust initially denied liability in the case.

Mrs Scott had a normal, healthy pregnancy until she went into labour and attended the Royal Bournemouth Hospital in Dorset. During her labour, the midwives did not notice for some time that the umbilical cord had become wrapped around her son Charlie’s shoulders.

Had a caesarean section been carried out straight away, Charlie would have been unlikely to sustain any damage. However, this did not happen, and Charlie was starved of oxygen. He was left with a severe form of cerebral palsy, and is unable to carry out basic tasks without assistance.

The court has awarded 14-year-old Charlie with £7.1 million in damages, which will be paid as annual payments to provide him with the constant care he will require for the rest of his life.
