Posted on: October 14th, 2011

An unnamed twenty-year-old man, who suffered acute brain damage due to oxygen starvation during his mother’s labour, has had a birth injury compensation settlement of 1.25 million pounds approved in the High Court.

Mr Justice Foskett was told how the man, who was suing through his parents, had suffered the injury at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow due to medical staff’s delay in performing a caesarean delivery.

The court was told how the unnamed man has the mind of a young child, experiences difficulty walking and requires constant care and attention.

The Princess Alexandra Hospital agreed the award without admitting liability
