Mother Wins £7.1 Million On Behalf Of Son With Cerebral Palsy, Pt.2

Our last post introduced the story of one British mother who recently won a 12-year battle on behalf of her son. She recovered a £7.1 million verdict from a large hospital after its midwives failed to spot a common complication that left her newborn son with cerebral palsy.

This case is an example of why it is so important to work with an experienced and effective cerebral palsy lawyer - large hospitals in Ohio and around the nation will devote enormous resources to avoiding liability for these injuries. While these legal battles can be difficult, a specialized attorney can help families successfully recover the money they need to provide for a lifetime of cerebral palsy care needs.

In this mother's case, the hospital only admitted responsibility for the injuries after 12 years of expert investigations and legal battles. The hospital denied the mother's claims and arguments, pushing back until her legal team confronted them with clear forensic evidence of the midwives' delivery mistakes.

A UK newspaper quoted the mother: "I adore [my son] but life is very hard, he needs constant care and attention, so I did it because I want him to be looked after in the future." "My message to others would be don't give up, no matter how hard it gets."
